Asetek's proprietary Direct-to-Chip (D2C) liquid cooling technology will be deployed by Penguin Computing to cool NVIDIA's P100 GPU accelerators.

"Utilizing Penguin's Tundra ES platform with Asetek's D2C liquid cooling technology will allow our government clients to push the boundaries of these GPU's for deep learning research," says Ken Gudenrath, director, Federal Division, Penguin Computing.

"Asetek has been chosen to cool the world's most advanced GPUs. It is an important validation of our offering and we are pleased that our OEM partner, Penguin Computing, continues to select Asetek technology. This is an initial order, and we expect additional deliveries to follow," says André Sloth Eriksen, CEO and founder of Asetek.

This initial order is for 140 loops to be used with Asetek's RackCDU Direct-to-Chip (D2C) liquid cooling solution. The order is valued at USD $40,000 and will be delivered in August 2017.
