Video: Project Cyclops comes to SC17 in a Quest to Build the World’s Fastest Node

In this video from SC17, Rich Brueckner from insideHPC describes Project Cyclops, a benchmarking quest to build the world’s fastest single node.

“Codenamed “Cyclops”, the single-node supercomputer demonstrates the computational power that individual scientists, engineers, artificial intelligence practitioners, and data scientists can deploy in their offices. Cyclops looks to rank well on the HPCG benchmark.

Project Cyclops is building a system based on a chassis provided by Supermicro and is fueled by a pair of Intel Xeon E5 v4 processors, 128 GB of Kingston DDR4 memory, and M2 SSD drives from Seagate. An innovative liquid cooling system from CoolIT Systems will chill the processors and GPU accelerators. RedLine Performance Solutions will provide system testing and will help optimize the system for benchmarking and workload runs.
