  • What is it?
    Parallel computing refers to a method of using multiple computing resources at the same time to solve a computational problem. During the process, many instructions are executed simultaneously. The basic concept is to divide the content to be calculated into discrete parts, and then solve the problem by using multiple execution methods.

  • Why do you need it?
    A traditional method of computation involves performing software operations on a single computer (with a single central processing unit). The CPU uses a series of instructions to solve the problem in sequence, but only one of the instructions can be executed at a time. Parallel computing is an evolution of this sequence calculation method, with an intention to simulate the state of the natural world, where events occur simultaneously and can be processed in parallel at the same time. According to this principle, the processing speed of complex instructions can be accelerated, and computation time can be reduced.

  • How is GIGABYTE helpful?
    GIGABYTE's G-Series Servers feature a variety of GPU accelerator card expansion slots, which allow the benefits of parallel computing to be realized by utilizing the processing power of a multi-core GPU. The G291-2G0 can accommodate up to 16 NVIDIA T4/P4 accelerator cards in a 2U chassis, making it suitable for artificial intelligence inferencing workloads, such as: speech recognition, image and video processing, online shopping or video streaming recommendation systems, etc. NVIDIA’s Tesla T4 is designed to provide scale-up expansion of a single server’s acceleration compute capabilities, reducing inferencing delay by a factor of 10 and providing incredible compute energy efficiency 40 times higher than a CPU.

    Cluster Computing: An Advanced Form of Distributed Computing
    Cluster computing is a form of distributed computing that is similar to parallel or grid computing, but categorized in a class of its own because of its many advantages, such as high availability, load balancing, and HPC. GIGABYTE Technology, an industry leader in high-performance servers, presents this tech guide to help you learn about cluster computing. We also recommend GIGABYTE servers that can help you benefit from cluster computing.
    Setting the Record Straight: What is HPC? A Tech Guide by GIGABYTE
    The term HPC, which stands for high performance computing, gets thrown around a lot nowadays, as server solutions become more and more ubiquitous. It is running the risk of becoming a catchall phrase: anything that is “HPC” must be the right choice for your computing needs. You may be wondering: what exactly are the benefits of HPC, and is HPC right for you? GIGABYTE Technology, an industry leader in high-performance servers, presents this tech guide to help you understand what HPC means on both a theoretical and a practical level. In doing so, we hope to help you evaluate if HPC is right for you, while demonstrating what GIGABYTE has to offer in the field of HPC.
    NCHC and Xanthus Elevate Taiwanese Animation on the World Stage with GIGABYTE Servers
    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.
    What is a Server? A Tech Guide by GIGABYTE
    In the modern age, we enjoy an incredible amount of computing power—not because of any device that we own, but because of the servers we are connected to. They handle all our myriad requests, whether it is to send an email, play a game, or find a restaurant. They are the inventions that make our intrinsically connected age of digital information possible. But what, exactly, is a server? GIGABYTE Technology, an industry leader in high-performance servers, presents our latest Tech Guide. We delve into what a server is, how it works, and what exciting new breakthroughs GIGABYTE has made in the field of server solutions.
