In this video, Kirby Collins from Convey Computer discusses why the company’s hybrid-core architecture is so effective on Graph500 computing applications. Recorded at SC11 in Seattle.

On the most recent list, announced at SC11, multiple Convey single-node, hybrid-core systems clocked in at between 1.60 to 1.76 GTEP/s (billion edges per second) on problem sizes 27 and 28. Convey has a total of six entries on the Graph500 List including submissions from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory/National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (LBL/NERSC), Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), and Bielefeld University. Compared pound-for-pound and watt-for-watt, Convey’s family of reconfigurable (FPGA) systems provide superior processing power on the Graph500 ( ) list.(1) The Graph500 organization establishes and maintains a set of large-scale benchmarks that measure performance of “big data” applications.
