Nvidia Signs On Cray Exec As New Tesla CTO

by on August 17, 2011

A few weeks ago Cray CTO Steve Scott made waves in the HPC News media with the announcement of his resignation and move to a “computing partner” that wouldn’t be named.  Most people figured they meant AMD.  Well, it’s been named now and it’s a shocker: He’s the new CTO of NVidia’s Tesla business unit.

“There are few people on the planet that have Steve’s deep system level understanding of high performance computing,” said Bill Dally, Nvidia’s chief scientist. “Steve’s decision to join Nvidia is a resounding endorsement that GPU accelerated computing is the future of HPC. He will play a central role in architecting the world’s most powerful supercomputers.”
