At Virtual ISC 2021: Altair-AMD Collaboration Revs up Solvers with EPYC 7003 Chips

In this interview at virtual ISC 2021, Altair and AMD discuss their technology collaboration in which the performance of Altair applications, such as the RADIOSS finite element solver for linear and non-linear problems, is accelerated when run using AMD’s new EPYC 7003 Series 7nm CPUs, announced in March.

“The EPYC in general (was developed) as a kind of a throughput-focused processor,” said Kevin Mayo, AMD’s director of high performance computing solutions engineering. “Be it the high core count, be it the high cache, and also the high memory channels, it’s able to just crank through a lot of data in memory bandwidth-intensive application or compute-intensive application. So all of those characteristics came together exceptionally well, running Altair products.”

Be it the high core count, be it the high cache, and also the high memory channels, (EPYC is) able to just crank through a lot of data in memory bandwidth-intensive application or compute-intensive application. So all of those characteristics came together exceptionally well, running Altair products.

Altair’s Eric Lequiniou, VP of RADIOSS Development and Altair Solver HPC, discussed an important aspect of the joint venture: evaluation and recommendation of EPYC 7003 Series model by Altair workload.
