insideHPC’s bud Andy Jones from the UK has taken up the pen again. He posted a piece to ZDNet UK last week. An excerpt:

HPC: does it stand for high-performance computing, or is it high-powered? Or high-productivity? And does it really matter? Well, even for the non-pedants out there, there is a story in that mysterious ‘P’, says Andrew Jones, vice president of HPC at the Numerical Algorithms Group.

…While I stand firm on ‘P equals performance’, I support the focus on productivity. Indeed, I have held forth on the topic on a number of occasions over the past few years.

Stay tuned for more from Andy in coming weeks.
