In this Chip Chat Podcast, Joe Curley from Intel discusses the recent International Supercomputing Conference. One of the event highlights was the announcement of the TOP500 list, which is led by the #1 Tianhe-2 supercomputer in China.
Imagine what you could do with a Sandy Bridge server with 3.2 Terabytes of memory–at flash prices. In this slidecast, Kevin Wagner from Diablo Technologies describes the company’s new Memory Channel Flash Solution. Diablo leveraged its extensive experience in advanced memory channel interfaces and protocols to deliver a system architecture that directly attaches persistent memory […]
This week Adapteva delivered the first Parallella computers ordered through its highly successful Kickstarter campaign. Powered by the company’s 16- and 64-core Epiphany multicore processors, Parallella is designed to bring parallel computing to a new generation of programmers in a low-cost, credit card-sized package. The Kickstarter community took a chance that we could deliver an […]
In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team discusses interconnect requirements for applications outside of the current Exascale mission profile. Henry is concerned that these hyperscale machines are getting so physically large that the latency will be a showstopper for applications that have to wait for data. The speed of light is not going to change, […]
In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the mission parameters driving Exascale development. Henry is concerned that a system designed for DOE applications will be tailored to that particular mission profile and therefore not be a performing system on many of today’s applications. Will the TOP 10 Exascale applications all be about […]
In this CSIROpod podcast, Glen Paul discusses the CSIRO Geothermal Project with Professor Klaus Regenauer-Lieb. In what will be an Australian first, the CSIRO Geothermal Project will deliver a novel solution for cooling the Pawsey Centre supercomputer, an A$80 million facility currently under construction in Kensington, south Perth.
