IB connects through PCIe.

which isn't on this.

Toward An FSF-Endorsable Embedded Processor

As a follow-up - it's one DDR3 channel - maybe 2. That puts it at about 1/30th of a K20.

People have tried to creep into Scientific Computing with processors like this (tile-based perf-per-watt SoCs). They haven't succeeded (see: Adapteva, Tilera, etc.). And they have much bigger budgets. :)

Toward An FSF-Endorsable Embedded Processor

Durinia Re:Scientific Computing (258 comments)

For the record, the Tesla K20x TDP numbers include the memory (it's for the entire card).

A comment below says that it uses DDR3 1333. Total bandwidth of that, being extremely generous and giving them 6 memory channels (unlikely) puts you in the neighborhood of about 1/10th the memory bandwidth of the K20.

Combine that with the "how do you connect this to other things" problem, and this chip has no chance in scientific computing.

And interconnect them with what?

HDMI?

University of Minnesota Launches Review Project for Open Textbooks

Durinia Durinia writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Durinia (72612) writes "Minnesota Public Radio is running a story today about the University of Minnesota's Open Textbooks project. The goal of the project is to solicit reviews of college-level open source textbooks and collect those that pass muster onto their website. The project will focus first on high-volume introductory classes such as those for Math and Biology, because as David Ernst, director of the project, states in the interview:

"You know the world doesn't need another $150 Algebra One book. Algebra One hasn't changed for centuries, probably."
