Silverdraft Releases Next-Gen Supercomputer Systems

LAS VEGAS – Silverdraft (, makers of the high-performance Devil and Demon systems based on supercomputing technology, is unleashing the next-generation of its solutions with custom-tuned Devil supercomputers and fast Demon workstations offering greater computing muscle in small footprints.
Devils are scalable, supercomputing systems that deliver virtually unlimited compute power to performance-hungry applications. Now 20% faster, each Gen 2 Devil system features over 400 Intel E5 v3 CPU cores in 12 nodes, connected via a lightning-fast InfiniBand backbone. Combined with Micron DDR4 RAM and storage, this virtually latency-free design delivers huge gains in performance over previous models in an enclosure that fits under a desk. Multiple Devil systems can be clustered together via InifiBand, delivering practically limitless scalability. 

Demons are highly tuned desktop workstations that are optimized for specific applications. The Demon systems feature the same Intel E5 v3 processors and Micron DDR4 RAM and storage as the Devil range. Now 20% faster, the new Demon systems include single and multi-processor configurations in both a standard desktop form factor, with eight PCIE slots (four of them x16), and a compact form factor that delivers the same performance as the previous generation but in half the footprint. 

The Demon line has been expanded to include Demon Gamer Extreme, DGx, a new gaming configuration that gives users ultimate control over the performance of their system and gaming experience. The DGx system features the same Demon architecture but with user controls on the case front for over-clocking without going into the BIOS. It also features modules for user monitoring of fan speed, CPU temperature, bus speed and bus multiplier. 

The company will showcase a series of hands-on demonstrations at booth #SL15105 at NAB.
