Better Concurrency with HMB

BaffinBayModis_June52011_webready

Ocean modelling is complex from an algorithm standpoint and can require significant amounts of computing power to arrive at a simulation endpoint. However, many of the calculations that are contained in the simulation can be distributed among a cluster of systems and used on shared memory systems as well.

AMD powers the L-CSC cluster at the GSI research facility which achieved the number one position for most energy efficient supercomputers on the latest Green500™ List. The L-CSC cluster is installed at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH research facility in Darmstadt, Germany, and is powered by AMD FirePro™ S9150 server GPUs.

The insideHPC Guide to HPC in Life Sciences

HPC Life Sciences

The term next generation sequencing (NGS) is really a misnomer. NGS implies a single methodology, but the fact is that over the past 10 to 15 years there have been multiple generations and the end is nowhere in sight. Technological advances in the field are continuing to emerge at a record setting pace.

Code Modernization – Why it is so Important

Parallel Programing

For about 40 years, developers and users could count on an increase in CPU performance that would make applications run faster. However, with the slowdown in constant clock rate increases being replaced by additional core counts and even more new instructions, rethinking algorithms, their use of the latest APIs, and using the latest compilers has become critical for the next generation of application performance enhancements.
