With the Cray CS300 system and its advanced liquid-cooling architecture, we will provide our vast user community with a cost-effective and energy-efficient high performance computing system that is also a powerful and technologically-advanced tool for scientific research.
Today Penguin Computing demonstrated a new microserver platform based on the Intel Atom processor. As one of the first microserver designs built on the Open Compute Project’s microserver card specification, the microserver can accommodate 64-bit Intel Atom C2000 processors that feature up to eight cores and up to 32GB of 1600 MHz of DDR3L RAM […]
The Energy Efficient High Performance Computing Working Group at LBNL continues its mission promote energy-efficient HPC.
Two key projects within the US and Europe are attempting to solve the power challenge of exascale systems.
Over at the ARM Blog, Andrew Sloss writes that the ARM approach to Big Data and HPC sets out to maximize efficiency by not over-designing any particular component. The next era of systems will follow a-build-what-you-want style. By allowing the targeting of a SoC (System-on-Chip) to solve specific problems – one solution doesn’t fit both […]
Adapteva today introduced its Parallella University Program (PUP) for parallel programing research and/or education. Designed so universities can access inexpensive and open parallel computing hardware, the PUP program provides free hardware and developmental software specifically focused on parallel computing. The first offering via the PUP program will be the Parallella-16 computer, Adapteva’s Kickstarter-funded credit-card sized […]
In this video, Nvidia’s Mark Ebersole demonstrates Cuda development on an ARM-based platform. With CUDA 5.5, it is now possible to compile and run CUDA applications on ARM-based systems such as the Kayla development platform. In addition to native compilation on an ARM-based CPU system, it is also possible to cross-compile for ARM systems, allowing […]
