Today ARM announced new math libraries that are precision-tuned for 64-bit ARMv8-A processors. Designed for ARM-based HPC servers, ARM Performance Libraries are foundational math routines designed to enable the maximum performance of computational software. ARM math libraries take advantage of each silicon partner’s specific microarchitecture innovations and features within their SoCs based on the ARMv8-A architecture to ensure peak system performance. The HPC community will have an opportunity to see the first public demonstrations of ARM Performance Libraries at the upcoming SC15 conference.
The EU-funded DEEP Project has unveiled their innovative HPC platform: a 500 TFlop/s prototype system that implements a Cluster-Booster concept that has a lot in common with a turbocharged engine. The prototype operates with a full system software stack and programming environment engineered for performance and ease of use.
Today the SC15 Energy Efficient HPC Workshop announced that parallel supercomputing pioneer Justin Rattner will deliver the keynote address at their event in Austin on Monday, November 16th, 2015. Formerly head of Intel Labs, Rattner directed Intel’s global research efforts in microprocessors, systems and communications including the company’s disruptive research activity.
