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.
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.
Today STAC, the financial industry benchmarking organization, announced record performance results on the new Tesla K80 Dual-GPU Accelerator.
Today STAC released audited STAC-A2 Benchmark results for a server using the just-announced Nvidia Tesla K80 dual-GPU Accelerator board.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Over at the Xcelerit Blog, Jörg Lotze benchmarks Intel’s new Haswell (Xeon E5 v3 series) against the company’s flagship Xeon Phi coprocessor using a popular computational finance code. As the test application, he use a Monte-Carlo simulation used to price a portfolio of LIBOR swaptions. “The Xeon Phi accelerator wins the race clearly for double precision, reaching around 1.8x speedup vs. the Haswell CPU. However, this drops to 1.2x in single precision. The main reason is that the single precision version requires only half the memory and hence makes better use of the cache.”
