The Intel Xeon E5 2600 v4 Broadwell processors are finally available. My first Linpack testing with a E5-2687W v4 shows a greater than 35% performance increase over the v3 Haswell version! And, it's the same price as the v3 version! It's significantly better than expected.
You can try Intel Python from your Anaconda install using conda!
Although our hope is that you will never have to call in to Support for assistance (we hope our machines operate at optimal performance out of the box and for many years without any hiccups) we realize that from time-to-time, you will need to reach out to us. Whether it is assistance with setting up or troubleshooting an issue with a newly purchased system or working to resolve issues with a system that has seen its share of years, we are more than happy to hear from you.
NVIDIA's announcement of the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 video cards has a lot of folks excited, and Iíve responded to several questions over the last few days regarding these cards. In an effort to help a wider audience who probably have similar questions, Iíve put together a summary of what we know at this point about these upcoming graphics cards.
If youíve been following us over the past few months you are probably well aware that we have been travelling quite a bit and have a lot of new projects going on. In fact, since the beginning of the year, we have travelled approximately 15,000 miles.. So what have we been up to?
Octane Render is a GPU-based rendering engine that is able to utilize multiple video cards to achieve maximum performance. In this article we will be testing to see how well Octane Render is able to use both different models of video cards as well as multiple physical cards in parallel.
