San Jose, CA, November 18, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Quantum3D, Inc., a leading provider of Commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS), open-architecture, real-time, visual-computing solutions, today announced the release of Thermite® 3 (T3) Model 1100 with NVIDIA® CUDA™ Technology. T3 1100 delivers dramatic increases in computing speed and uses the CUDA architecture with GPGPU parallel computing to create a high performance computer system for applications requiring in-theatre deployment in rugged and mobile environments.
T3 Model 1100 is one of Quantum3D’s newly released tactical visual computers powered by NVIDIA’s FX770M industry-leading, 32-core, CUDA-capable, Mobile GPU and a 1.6 GHz Intel© Core™ 2 Duo CPU. Designed to meet MIL-STD-810F, MIL-STD-461E, MIL-STD-704F and MIL-STD-1275, T3 1100 supports standard PC interfaces using rugged IP68 connectors and is available with both removable and internal solid state drives. A Quantum3D Eidetix 2100 PCIe-based Advanced Video Capture port is available with expansion up to four ports.
T3 1100 with the CUDA architecture facilitates outstanding potential in application areas including object recognition and tracking, image stabilization, laser and radar simulation, pattern recognition, digital image processing, video encoding/decoding, cryptography, and sensor processing. Developers can port their applications to GPUs and achieve orders of magnitude performance increase compared to CPU implementations.
"Thermite 3 Model 1100 was designed for high performance, rugged, mobile vehicle computing applications.” said Arnold Estep, Quantum3D’s Business Development Manager. "With NVIDIA’s Nexus development environment programmers can use Visual Studio the world’s most popular Windows development environment. The ease of CUDA development will reduce customers’ time to market and enable substantial performance increases with minimal investment of time and effort.” T3 1100 provides users an extremely powerful GPGPU capability in a rugged, COTS computer.
Thermite 3 Model 1100 Development kits are now available at specially discounted prices.
