+ - GPU supercomputer could crunch exabyte of data for Square Kilometre Array->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Researchers on the Square Kilometre Array project to build the world's largest radio telescope believe that a GPU cluster could be suited to stitching together the more than an exabyte of data that will be gathered by the telescope each day after its completion in 2024. One of the project heads said that graphics cards could be cut out for the job because of their high I/O and core count, adding that a conventional CPU-based supercomputer doesn't have the necessary I/O bandwidth to do the work."
