[anandtech] Ibm and Nvidia announce data analytics supercomputer partnership - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Companies like Intel and Microsoft got where they are today by climbing the IBM goliath's back and then later stabbing it. No reason NVIDIA won't do the same. They are far more interested in making a bootable coprocessor (CUDA on ARM) ala Knights Landing than being a slave to IBM or Intel's processors.

The highest clocked POWER8 CPU probably has a TDP over 250W. Is it also power inefficient and not "heat conscientious"? The POWER8 is a seriously impressive chip though, puts any Xeon or SPARC to shame.

I am working on migrating software from POWER6+ servers to Xeons. thumb.gif

While POWER are nice, their cost is quite high..... I pushed for redundant and distributed architecture on Xeons over a big POWER7 servers. We got 8x HP DL380 for a little over the cost of a single POWER server.
Once again...

Yeah, I know POWER is dying. Still, my point stands chip-for-chip there's probably no Xeon or SPARC that can match SPECInt or SPECjbb on these new POWER chips.
