Breaking Amdahl's Law with the DEEP Project

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Over at the ISC Blog, Thomas Lippert from the Jülich Supercomputing Centre writes that the DEEP project is about to demonstrate that the pitfalls of Amdahl’s law can be avoided in specific situations.

The applications adapted to DEEP are selected in order to investigate and demonstrate the usefulness of the combination of hardware, system software and the programming model to leave ground and leap beyond the limits of Amdahl’s law of parallel computing. We are eager to show our first results at the ISC’13 in Leipzig.

For more information on this experiment, Lippert invites you to join the the ISC’13 BoF session entitled: Exascale Research: The European Approach on Tuesday, June 18, 2013, 9 am – 10 am in the Leipzig Congress Centre Hall 4. Read the Full Story.
