Oct. 19, 2012—NVIDIA recently launched Southeast Asia’s first GPU R&D and Compute-Solution Center in Malaysia, a collaboration with HP and MIMOS. The centre will serve as a one-stop shop to promote, share and teach GPU technologies and solutions to customers as well as interested parties in general purpose GPU (GPGPU) and GPU-related topics.

Powered by HP Converged Infrastructure architecture featuring HP ProLiant Servers, HP Networking switches and HP 3PAR Storage, the GPU R&D and Compute Solution Center will facilitate the adaptation of many-core, parallel and GPU techniques in scientific, financial and big data processing. The centre will also feature leading GPU-enabled applications like SolidWorks, Autodesk 3ds Max, ANSYS, Abaqus and Adobe CS6.

The centre will be the hub of collaborative university research projects; creating CUDA teaching centers at universities; GPGPU workshops; CUDA programming contests; technology road shows; and hosting government and industry visits. It will also cater to GPU-related activities, such as developing GPU accelerator libraries, R&D in GPGPU-enabled applications and generic algorithms, and GPGPU application benchmark and testing.

NVIDIA Opens GPU R&D and Compute-Solution Center in Malaysia with MIMOS

One-Stop Center First in Southeast Asia to Champion GPU Technologies

KUALA LUMPUR—Oct. 19, 2012—NVIDIA yesterday launched Southeast Asia’s first GPU R&D and Compute-Solution Center in Malaysia, working with HP and MIMOS.

The center, which is located on MIMOS campus, will serve as a one-stop shop to promote, share and teach GPU technologies and solutions to customers and those interested in general purpose GPU (GPGPU), as well as to perform collaborative work on GPU-related topics.

In addition to featuring leading GPU-enabled applications – such as SolidWorks, Autodesk 3ds Max, ANSYS, Abaqus and Adobe CS6 – the center will promote the dynamic growth of GPU computing in Malaysia. Local activities include: collaborative university research projects; creating CUDA teaching centers at universities; GPGPU workshops; CUDA programming contests; technology road shows; and hosting government and industry visits.

It will also cater to GPU-related activities, such as developing GPU accelerator libraries, R&D in GPGPU-enabled applications and generic algorithms, and GPGPU application benchmark and testing.

Powered by an HP Converged Infrastructure architecture featuring HP ProLiant Servers, HP Networking switches and HP 3PAR Storage, the GPU R&D and Compute Solution Center will facilitate the adaptation of many-core, parallel and GPU techniques in scientific, financial and big data processing.

“The creation of this center reflects the increasing use of GPU computing in demanding general-purpose scientific, engineering and computational finance applications,” said Francis Yu, Vice President of APAC Sales and Marketing at NVIDIA. “Together, NVIDIA, HP and MIMOS are championing the development of GPU computing, and bringing its benefits to organizations in Malaysia and around the region.”

MIMOS President and CEO Datuk Abdul Wahab Abdullah said, “MIMOS values industry partnerships that promote cross-fertilization of ideas and enable synergized solution development together with our technology recipients. In turn, this helps accelerate our research results and encourages adoption locally and globally.”

MIMOS currently utilizes the center for research and development in big data processing in the area of text processing, financial computation, and data scrambling. These libraries are in turn given to MIMOS technology recipients and end customers; who can take them to the local and global market for their product sales and increase efficiency.

Held in conjunction with the opening of the center is a workshop to create better GPGPU awareness and showcase GPGPU solutions and technologies.
