@HPCpodcast: A Breakdown of the ‘Treasure Trove’ TOP500 List

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We release this special edition of the @HPCpodcast, sponsored by Lenovo, from the ISC conference in Hamburg with a detailed discussion of the new TOP500 list, issued this morning. Shahin, a list advocate, notes that the TOP500 contains 30-plus years of system data showing the convolutions and evolution of the highest performing HPC architectures – “a treasure trove,” as he puts it.

We offer top-line insights from the new list, not just the TOP500 but also the GREEN500, the High-Performance Conjugate Gradient (HPCG) benchmark, and the AI-inspired, mixed-precision HPL-MxP benchmark.

You can find our podcasts at insideHPC’s @HPCpodcast page, on Twitter, at the OrionX.net blog, on iTunes, and on Google. Here’s the OrionX.net podcast page, and the RSS feed.
