GE to manufacture HPEC and graphics solutions based on NVIDIA Tegra K1 mobile processor

GE Intelligent Platforms today said it will manufacture rugged high performance embedded computing (HPEC) and graphics solutions based on NVIDIA Tegra K1 mobile processor.

GE will be NVIDIA’s preferred provider of the new technology to serve applications in harsh environments, most notably to customers in the military/aerospace market.

Tegra K1, which brings console-class gaming graphics and performance to mobile devices, features 192 fully programmable GPU computing cores – capable of executing CUDA algorithms – in addition to four ARM Cortex-A15 CPU cores with a fifth battery-saver core, to deliver better performance and battery life.

Simon Collins, product manager, GE Intelligent Platforms, said: “Previously, our HPEC offering ranged in power consumption from around 2,000 watts at the high end to 100 watts at the entry level. In future, we will be able to offer HPEC solutions that consume as little as 10 watts, allowing CUDA algorithms to be easily ported across an even broader range of platforms.”
