Microway In The News
Shanghai Microarchitecture Improvements

Microway now offers AMD quad-core "Shanghai" Opteron processors in clusters and cluster extensions. With clock frequencies up to 2.7 GHz, 6 MB L3 Cache, a DDR2-800 memory interface, and microarchitectural enhancements, Microway can provide 20-30% more energy efficient cluster nodes. Our products will be on display at our Booth #1945 and AMD's Booth #1833.
Microway Opteron Servers and Clusters

With CUDA software, NVIDIA GPU customers are reporting 10-100x application speed improvements. Microway now provides the highest rack density GPU cluster with our fully-integrated Tesla + InfiniBand configuration, achieving a 2P quad-core CPU server and two Tesla GPUs per 1U rack space.
AMD's Firestream 9250 GPUs add new levels of performance to the Microway WhisperStation. Up to four GPUs can be integrated with two quad-core Opteron processors, 32 GB memory, 4 TB storage, and AMD Stream SDK. For those requiring larger storage, Microway's ServaStor server offers 16+ TB storage in an environmentally green chassis.
