S3 Graphics GPGPU technology helps accelerate parallel-based, computation-intensive applications for the engineering, scientific, medical, and consumer markets.
The complete re-design of the Chrome general purpose programmable shader architecture supports an SIMD instruction set to efficiently calculate computations on parallel data workloads and thousands of concurrent threads. The result is Gigaflops of high-throughput calculations to create a high performance computing (HPC) environment.
Internal research and development along with industry leading ISV (Independent Software Vendor) and academia support help build the S3 Graphics GPGPU ecosystem to bring HPC to the masses. Applications that took days to complete can now churn out answers right at your fingertip in the comfort of your home, office, or research laboratory. Putting multiple advanced graphics processors in a system or across multiple platforms will give true HPC flexibility at fractions of the cost of today's HPC platforms utilizing non-GPU accelerated solutions.
