On the Road to ARM Supercomputing, Mont-Blanc Project Releases First Newsletter

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The European Mont-Blanc project has released their first newsletter. Launched in October 2011, the three-year project aims to leverage commodity ARM processors for high performance computing.

Energy efficiency is already a primary concern for the design of any computer system and it is unanimously recognized that future Exascale systems will be strongly constrained by their power consumption. The Mont-Blanc project aims to design a new type of computer architecture capable of setting future HPC standards that will deliver Exascale performance while using 15 to 30 times less energy than today’s best designs.
