For the fourth year in a row China’s Milkyway 2 (also known as Tianhe-2) retained its ranking as the world’s fastest supercomputer on the most recent Top500 list with the same 33.86 petaflop/s (quadrillions of calculations per second) performance record it set in June 2013. The Top500 list recorded no changes in the top nine systems since the June […]
SGI unveiled two new supercomputers and high-performance computing (HPC) management software at SC14 SGI’s new sixth-generation ICE XA supercomputer is a highly scalable and energy-efficient system that runs Linux and is powered by Intel’s latest Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors. The distributed-memory supercomputer can leverage Intel’s Xeon Phi coprocessors or GPU accelerators from Nvidia to increase the system’s […]
In this video, the Radio Free HPC team meets at SC14 in New Orleans to discuss the recent news that Nvidia & IBM will build two Coral 150+ Petaflop Supercomputers in 2017 for Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories. The two machines will feature IBM POWER9 processors coupled with Nvidia’s future Volta GPU technology. NVLink will be a critical piece of the architecture as well, along with a system interconnect powered by Mellanox.
