The Cray XK6 equipped with a unified x86/GPU programming environment that comes with several powerful tools, libraries, compilers and third-party software. The customers of CrayXK6, will be able to take advantage of the ability of a multi-purpose supercomputer designed for next-generation multi-core processors, high performance computing applications.
In addition, another potent weapon is a mainstay of the Cray XK6 is the merger of two leading technologies from AMD and NVIDIA to create a true hybrid supercomputers with the flexibility of intra-node. By combining AMD Opteron processor with NVIDIA GPU, which compute node in the Cray XK6 system gives users the option to run applications with either a scalar or an accelerator component. The Cray XK6 compute blade can also be mixed with Cray XE6 counting knife to a goal, a single multi-supercomputer system.
