Compucon GPU HPC Systems refer to Compucon built computers pre-configured with general purpose GPU cards to achieve parallel and thus high computing.  The range is based on Tesla GPU cards as of 2014-01.  

Tesla is the top range GPU product brand from Nvidia.  For some reason, Tesla is also the name of the first generation of CUDA GPU technology from Nvidia.  Let us attempt to clarify the naming convention here.

CUDA GPU Generation History

      1st G = Tesla
      2nd G = Fermi
      3rd G = Kepler
      4th G = Maxwell
      5th G = Pascal on the roadmap
      6th G = Volta on the roadmap
