In this video, researchers describes the Lattice-CSC cluster in Darmstadt, Germany. Currently the most energy-efficient supercomputer on the Green500 list, the Lattice-CSC is powered by 640 AMD FirePro S9150 GPUs to achieve 5.27 GFLOPS/Watt.
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.
In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks ahead to the ISC 2015 Student Cluster Competition. This year, 11 teams from around the globe will face off to build the fastest HPC cluster.
Industry PerspectivesEPFL launches Denab: a scalable HPC architecture for researchers and students. "Working with ClusterVision and Intel has proved to be a wise and productive decision for EPFL as we continue to grow our computational capabilities to support our many researchers and students."

"As we see Moore’s Law alive and well, more and more parallelism is introduced into all computing platforms and on all levels of integration and programming to achieve higher performance and energy efficiency. We will discuss Multi- and Many-Core solutions for highly parallel workloads with general purpose and energy efficient technologies. We will also touch on the challenges and opportunities for parallel programming models, methodologies and software tools to achieve highly efficient and highly productive parallel applications. At the end we will take a brief look towards Exascale computing." [Read More...]
