ABSTRACT: NEC has a proven track record as the world-leader in vector computing and for providing solutions for the most demanding HPC-requirements.
NEC’s scalar product line, the LX-Series, is based on industry-standard components and very successful because of NEC’s ability to maximize application performance on x86-based and GPU-accelerated compute cluster systems by means of software-developments, application experience and industry co-operations.
NEC is developing the next generation NEC SX vector system focussing on TCO-enhancements through superior computational and power efficiency. The debate about future architectures and the mere fact of SIMD-architectures showing up everywhere are proof that vector computing is the general and inevitable direction of the future for simple technological and physical reasons.
Combined with NEC’s ability to design and maintain big complex installations, NEC’s scalar, vector and storage products provide the most flexible solution portfolio for every requirement in the market.
