EKA supercomputer

Eka, the fastest supercomputer in Asia today, is a firm pillar of the 3D animation scene in Pune, India. With peak powers of 172 TeraFlops, Eka was used in the rendering of the film "Roadside Rodeo," the first international quality 3D animation film from India. Eka, the Sanskrit term for "the one," accomplished the rendering job for the film in just five months. The supercomputer was pivotal in reducing the rendering times for animation frames, computer generated imagery, visual effects and compositing in the domains of high-end 3D modelling, 2D & 3D animation and game asset development.
