In the supercomputing world, we often think of things in tens. Over at TACC, Aaron Dubrow has posted a series of interviews with ten of the top HPC minds in Texas. With a focus what on what terascale, petascale, and exascale means to them and their field, the interviews cover a broad base of application […]

There is no doubt that the Sequester is putting extreme pressure on critical R&D in this country. As members of the HPC community, how can we help to ensure that we continue to fund important supercomputing research? In this video from February 15, 2013, the House Subcommittee on Research holds a hearing on Applications for […]
In this video from the Mellanox booth at SC12, Tommy Minyard from the Texas Advanced Computing Center presents: InfiniBand at TACC: From Terascale to Petascale.
Over at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, Paromita Pain writes that researchers at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine are using TACC supercomputers to better understand membrane proteins, which play a major role in determining whether medications are efficient and whether they have side effects. According to Dr. Marta Filizola, understanding how opioid receptors work […]
TACC has released Most Pixels Ever: Cluster Edition, an open source software tool that allows researchers, especially those in the humanities, to create interactive, multimedia visualizations on high resolution, tiled displays. The goal is to make visualization tools easier for humanities researchers to use,” said Rob Turknett, digital media, arts and humanities coordinator at TACC. […]
In this video from SC12, Lars Koesterke from the Texas Advanced Computing Center describes how hundreds of science applications are being ported to the the new Stampede supercomputer powered by the Intel Xeon Phi.
Could grass clippings be used to produce fuel for our cars and furnaces? TACC supercomputing resources have helped enable new science at the University of Virginia around biofuel reactions. Using density functional theory, a quantum mechanical modeling method used in physics and chemistry to investigate the electronic structure of molecules, the researchers calculated the interactions […]
As the first installation to deploy the new MIC technology at large scale in the forthcoming Stampede supercomputer, TACC and partners will soon begin offering training workshops, technical documentation, and academic content to help the research community rapidly develop applications using Intel’s new Xeon Phi coprocessors. MIC’s support of standard programming languages and tools allow […]
In this video, the Texas Advanced Computing Center makes preparations for the Stampede supercomputer. When fully deployed in 2013, the 9 Petaflop Stampede system will employ Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors and innovative cooling technologies.
Over at BSN, Theo Valich writes that Jay Boisseau’s presentation at the recent Intel Developer Forum sheds light on TACC’s plans to deploy the Stampede supercomputer powered by Xeon Phi co-processors. The system originally targeted 10 PFLOPS, but it seems they might miss the mark by a few dozen/hundred TFLOPS. According to information given, the […]
