Intel does not think you need a GPU for HPC

Nvidia is losing ground to the coprocessor Nvidia might have scored a few wins by touting its GPU’s in the HPC market, but it is starting to lose ground to the co-processor, according to Intel’s Diane Bryant. In an IDC interview Intel’s data centre boss said that Nvidia gained an early lead in the market for accelerated HPC workloads when it positioned its GPUs for that task several years ago. However there is a perception that processors used for machine learning today are GPUs like those from Nvidia and AMD. Bryant was a bit miffed when she was asked how Intel can compete in this market without a GPU. She said that the general purpose GPU, or GPGPU was just another type of accelerator and not one that’s uniquely suited…
