Infosys Technologies and U.S.-based NVIDIA on Wednesday announced a technology partnership centered around NVIDIA’s intellectual property in high-speed parallel computing. To mark the alliance, an Infosys-NVIDIA technology centre has been set up at the Infosys campus.

NVIDIA’s CUDA technology was considered an advancement in parallel computing architecture, aiding high performance, NVIDIA co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told reporters here. CUDA was designed to allow application developers to tap unexploited power potential for a graphics processing unit (GPU).

“CUDA could multiply by fifty times the capability of a computer and reduce run time to the advantage of user enterprises”, Mr Huang claimed. NVIDIA has design facilities in Pune, Hyderabad and Bangalore. Infosys Vice-President Subu Goparaju said investment in the centre was mainly in the form of high technology from NVIDIA.
