New Report Surveys CPU-GPU Heterogeneous Computing Techniques

A new paper from ORNL’s Sparsh Mittal and Jeffrey Vetter seeks to change the mindset of researchers using GPUs. Entitled, “A Survey of CPU-GPU Heterogeneous Computing Techniques,” the paper contends that merely offloading computational tasks to GPUs is not optimal, instead, using both CPU and GPU can lead to potentially higher speedup.

Smart Manufacturing with a Digital Thread

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is leading a collaborative project with industrial partners to standardize 3-D models to exchange information across design and manufacturing in one seamless “digital thread.” The Design to Manufacturing and Inspection Project will make use of a new international standard for incorporating computer-readable product and manufacturing information (PMI) into 3D models that do not require human interpretation of graphical depictions and data re-entry.

FEA Simulations Bolster Designs Against Wind and Ice

The oil and gas industry depends on simulation. In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Robert Roe explores how the technique can optimize the integrity of structures in extreme environments.

Tesla K80 GPU Sets New Records on STAC-A2 Financial Benchmark

Today STAC, the financial industry benchmarking organization, announced record performance results on the new Tesla K80 Dual-GPU Accelerator.

New STAC Benchmark: Nvidia Tesla K80 GPU

Today STAC released audited STAC-A2 Benchmark results for a server using the just-announced Nvidia Tesla K80 dual-GPU Accelerator board.

New Report: Scaling Ansys in the Cloud

A newly published report by Techila Technologies and Cargotec‘s MacGregor looks at reducing the cost of ANSYS HPC system ownership with cloud services integrated to the enterprise IT.

Comparing Haswell Processors for HPC Applications

Over at the Dell Blog, Garima Kochhar has posted a performance evaluation of four Haswell processor models (Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 Product Family) comparing them for performance and energy efficiency on HPC applications.

SOLVE Report Explores Value of Government Investment in HPC

“Solve builds on over a decade of Council leadership to ensure the United States acts strategically to leverage HPC for competitiveness,” said Deborah L. Wince-Smith, President & CEO of the Council on Competitiveness.

Record STAC Performance with Haswell EP and Xeon Phi

The STAC Securities Technology Analysis Center has published new STAC-2 benchmarks showing record performance on the Intel Haswell EP processors coupled with the Intel Xeon Phi.

This Week in HPC: New Research from the U.S. Council on Competitiveness

The SOLVE Report is here! The Council on Competitiveness, with support from the US Department of Energy, engaged Intersect360 Research to interview 100+ companies whose use of HPC increases their competitiveness in industries such as manufacturing, finance, pharmaceuticals, and chemical engineering. These findings were published in Solve, a publication exploring how U.S. investment in HPC benefits America’s industrial and economic competitiveness.
