How Can High Performance Computing Render Art and Imagination?
In the 21st century, various breakthroughs in image creation and animation have been made using powerful computer graphics capabilities. Whether it is a perfect montage of virtual and real images, or exquisitely gorgeous visual effects, High Performance Computing (HPC) empowers artists using technological media to convey a wealth of ideas that will exceed your wildest imagination. Taiwan’s National Center for High-Performance Computing has adopted GIGABTYE’s GPU servers to provide the best computing performance capabilities possible for their Render Farm service.
The short film “A-nger” used a GPU cloud rendering engine to complete high-speed image rendering within 3 days and then synthesize together forest scenes and characters, accelerating the studio’s process efficiency by a factor of ten.

Continuing to Cultivate Taiwan’s Culture of Science and Technology
Created by Greener Grass Production, the Taiwanese sci-fi mini-series “2049” has debuted on Netflix and various local TV channels. The animated spin-off “2049+ Voice of Rebirth”, crafted by Xanthus Animation Studio, will soon premiere on the streaming service myVideo. The CGI show was created with the NCHC Render Farm’s GIGABYTE servers, which employ top-of-the-line NVIDIA® graphics cards to empower artists with industry-leading rendering capabilities. The servers can take on multiple workloads simultaneously through parallel computing, and they boast a wide range of patented smart features that ensure stability and availability. With all it has going for it, “2049+ Voice of Rebirth” may garner enough attention to become the breakout hit that will introduce Taiwanese animation to international audiences.
