If countries in Asia are going to be successful in being the first to develop exascale systems, then technological breakthroughs are also going to be vital. An ability to increase processor performance is critical, which means developers must constantly look at ways to enhance memory technology, interconnect and integrate new functions into the processor, reduce power consumption, identify innovative cooling techniques, and identify new technologies delivering increased flexibility to software developers.
Over at Fierce Government IT, David Perera writes that a June Energy Department report to Congress indicates that building a viable exascale supercomputer by 2022 will likely require at least $1 billion to $1.4 billion in funding and won’t occur in America unless federal agencies spend money on its development. Exascale suffers the problem of […]
In this video from the HPC Advisory Council Spain Conference 2013, Pedro J. Garcia presents: High-Performance Interconnection Networks on the Road to Exascale HPC: Challenges and Solutions. One of the challenges of that interconnect researchers face today is how to efficiently interconnect the huge number of processors expected to be present in future exascale systems. […]
