Progeniq BioBoost v3.0 for Intel Macs

updated 02:40 pm EDT, Tue August 8, 2006

Progeniq BioBoost v3.0

Progeniq today announced a Universal version of its third-generation BioBoost v3.0 bioinformatics data processing accelerator for Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger". BioBoost can leverage the new Intel-based Macs to make commonly used bioinformatics applications, such as Pairwise and Multiple Sequence Alignment, up to 10x-50x faster than a typical processor, according to the company. BioBoost accelerators provide hardware processing for the most computationally intensive applications. By utilizing Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology, the processor is able to 'rewire' itself on the fly according to the application that needs to be accelerated. This allows a single hardware accelerator to speed up any number of supported applications. The Universal version of BioBoost allows applications to run on both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs. Adding BioBoost removes computational bottlenecks and optimizes the entire workflow providing final results faster. [pricing not available]

"The BioBoost accelerator is a major milestone in bringing new generation computing technologies to the life sciences industry at mass-market cost," said Darran Nathan, Progeniq's Chief Executive Officer. "This is the start of a whole new wave in computing that promises to drastically cut processing time for compute-intensive applications across industries, providing flexible supercomputer-level processing power to end-users at amazingly affordable prices."
