Frankfurt, Germany (June 20, 2016) - Boston Limited unveiled the Boston Quattro 12256-T featuring the latest generation Intel® Xeon® Phi™ processor at ISC 2016 in Frankfurt, Germany.

The Quattro 12256-T leverages Intel's 2nd generation Intel® Xeon® Phi™ product family (formerly code named Knights Landing) to deliver massive thread and data parallelism and memory bandwidth, improved single-thread performance and Intel® Xeon® processor binary-compatibility all within a standard CPU form factor. In addition to this, the new chip provides 64-core per processor with up to 4 threads per core. A total of 256 threads per processor are compatible with software compiled for existing x86 hardware.

"Boston are once again at the forefront of HPC technology with the launch of our Quattro 12256-T. Our mission is to provide customers with the best of breed technologies and this launch helps us to achieve that" said Manoj Nayee, Managing Director, Boston Ltd.
