Power to the People


In this special guest feature, Michael Feldman and Chris Willard from Intersect360 Research look at the newly launched OpenPOWER Consortium from IBM.

Argo and ADEPT Projects Take New Approach to Energy Efficiency

Two key projects within the US and Europe are attempting to solve the power challenge of exascale systems.

ARM for HPC Will be Build-what-you-want Style

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 […]

Parallella University Program to Bring Parallel Computing to Higher Education

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 […]

Video: Cuda Development on ARM Platforms

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 […]
