Using our RECS®|Box, you can choose just the hardware that you need to get your job done best. You can choose and combine the following technologies:
- x86 CPU
- 32/64 bit ARM CPU
- GPGPU, dedicated or integrated
- FPGA, standalone or as SoC
- Xeon Phi
- PCIe SSD
Choosing the right technology for a problem can boost the overall energy efficiency dramatically. In some use cases, we measured an increased energy efficiency of factor 120 using an FPGA compared to a classical CPU. Still, comparing the FPGA against an optimized GPU implementation doubles the energy efficiency.
Energy costs are the biggest price boosters in data centres. That’s why a high energy efficiency is so important, you safe twice: First you pay less electricity costs for running the servers, then you pay less for cooling.
A new high-speed interconnection between FPGAs has been integrated in the RECS®|Box which reaches a speed of 40 Gb/s and 320 ns latency.
