“With around 3.2 billion computer operations (3.2 gigaflops) per watt, the combination of GPUs CPUs makes “Piz Daint” one of the world’s most energy-efficient supercomputers in the petaflop performance class.”
In this video from the HPC Advisory Council Swiss Conference 2014, Oded Paz from Mellanox Global Education Services presents: InfiniBand Principles Every HPC Expert MUST Know.
I produced this time lapse video featuring clips from the opening keynote at GTC 2014. “Nvidia really knows how to wow the audience with a blend of showmanship, state-of-the-art graphics, and dazzling technology.”
“This talk will provide a general introduction to the GPU Development ecosystem by example of typical data processing tasks, compared to other solutions. It will give an overview of key architecture aspects that make amazingly high GPU performance possible.”
Arista Networks filed for an initial public offering today. Founded by Andy Bechtolsheim, Arista builds switches that handle traffic at large internet data centers for companies including Facebook Inc, Yahoo Inc, Comcast Corp and Citigroup Inc. The company said it would raise $200 million from the offering, but the final size of the IPO could vary.
In this video from GTC 2014, Steve Oberlin from Nvidia describes his new role as Chief Technical Officer for Accelerated Computing. Along the way, he discusses: the HPC lessons learned from the CRAY T3E and other systems, Nvidia’s plans to tackle the challenges of the HPC Memory Wall, the current status on Project Denver, and how Nvidia plans to couple to the POWER architecture in future systems.
With their upcoming Pascal generation of GPUs, Nvidia plans to bring NVLink and 3D stacked memory to market in their ongoing battle against the HPC memory wall. “This is our 50th episode of Radio Free HPC, so I’d like to offer a Tip of the Hat to my co-hosts, Henry Newman and Dan Olds!”
In this video, Dan Olds and Rich Brueckner from Radio Free HPC take a Tesla Motors electric sedan for a test drive. Dan has a lead foot, so hang on and come along for the ride!
With all the HPC events this Spring, it really is March Madness for us at insideHPC. In fact, I’ll be on the road for nearly a month straight bringing you the very latest in High Performance Computing. And now with Go Pro Traveling, you can follow along.
In this video, industry analyst Rob Farber shares his perspectives on the recent GPU technology announcements from Nvidia. “At the 2014 GPU Technology Conference, Nvidia announced a new interconnect called NVLink which enables the next step in harnessing the full potential of the accelerator, and the Pascal GPU architecture with stacked memory, slated for 2016.”
