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.
