853 InfiniPath PCIe  PathScale Says AMD Platform Superior for High Speed InfiniBand

High-speed clustering on 10Gbit InfiniBand proves superior on AMD platforms.

During IDF, we had the pleasant experience of being able to speak with PathScale, a company with products that are shaping the landscape of high-speed networking and communications for clustering environments. These applications include biotech research, space research, large-scale 3D rendering and any other high-level computational applications.

Greg Lindahl, PathScale’s Distinguished Engineer, spoke to us about some of the company’s controllers, specifically its InfiniPath controller, which is a 10Gbit/sec InfiniBand interconnect capable of scaling its performance depending on the number of CPU cores in a system. PathScale says that while other controllers are limited to 2 to 4 million messages (small packets of data), a single PathScale controller is capable of transmitting up to 10 million messages a second, providing the industry’s best InfiniBand performance.
