Video: Cray Steps up with 2nd Generation AMD EPYC Processors for HPC

In this video, from Forrest Norrod from AMD welcomes Peter Ungaro from Cray to discuss how 2nd Generation AMD EPYC processors with drive new levels of performance for HPC.

The AMD EPYC 7002 Series Processors deliver the performance to power mission-critical HPC workloads in science, research, and enterprise. Featuring leadership architecture, performance, and security, these 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors help customers turbocharge their application performance, transform their datacenter operations, and help secure their critical data.

The AMD EPYC 7002 Series Processors are the first x86 server processors featuring 7nm hybrid-multi-die design and PCIe Gen4. With up to 64 high performance cores per SOC, 2nd Gen AMD EPYC Processors deliver world-record performance on industry benchmarks. They are available in the Cray CS500 cluster and Shasta supercomputers.”

Back in May, AMD announced that Cray will build the 2021 Frontier supercomputer at ORNL. The system is expected to deliver more than 1.5 exaFLOPS of processing performance with AMD CPU and GPUs to accelerate advanced research programs.

After that, Matt Link from Indiana University describes how the new Big Red 200 supercomputer will drive simulation-based research.

Indiana University will be the first university to deploy a Shasta system, the Cray Slingshot interconnect and Cray Urika AI Suite for Shasta, providing its engineers, researchers and scientists powerful resources for the next era of computing. The new Big Red 200 supercomputer will be instrumental in the University’s exploration and advancement of AI in education, cybersecurity, medicine, environmental science and more.”
