GSI Technology, Inc. announced the release in production of two high capacity, low power server products. The Leda-E and Leda-S boards incorporate the Gemini-I® APU, capable of 1.2 POPs at 80W and 800 TOPs at 40W, respectively. The new server offerings are available as a single 2U server of eight Leda-E? boards at 10 POPs, and a 1U server of sixteen Leda-S? boards, totaling 13 POPs.

GSI's true compute-in-memory technology has proven differentiated capabilities in large (billion item) database search and high-performance compute applications, such as facial recognition, drug discovery, Opensearch, and object detection and re-identification. The low 1.2kW full server power of these formidable systems unlocks the potential for the 1U server to be used in mobile or remote applications. Single card versions of the Gemini-I have shown six-fold performance improvement over the Xeon® CPU for seed location filtering in DNA read mapping by Cornell University1.

Similarly, the Gemini-I® has shown equivalent performance to the A100 for cryptography applications, such as high throughput hash-based security protocols, as demonstrated by Northern Arizona University (NAU)2. NAU found that an 8-card APU server would be compelling for further evaluation due to its smaller form factor in a 2U server compared to an equivalent A100 GPU system. Server systems based on GSI?s production Gemini-I APU chip come pre-bundled with an application development compiler and can be further customized with Real-Time Fast Back Projection software or Fast Vector Search support.
