Quantum: UChicago Researchers Show Qubits Retaining Information for Hours or Longer — ‘An Eternity’

Touting major potential implications for quantum computing, researchers at the University of Chicago have released a study in which they demonstrated control of “quantum memories of silicon carbide,” the ability to control individual quantum bits — qubits — that retain information for hours or possibly days, instead of fractions of a second. In a paper […]

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Los Alamos’ Gary Grider Argues Efficiency in HPC Is King and Laments Simulation’s ‘Raw Deal’

It might surprise you to know that Gary Grider, HPC Division Leader at Los Alamos National Laboratory, is less interested in FLOPS than efficiency. In this interview, he explains why “FLOPS” hasn’t appeared in Los Alamos RFPs over the last decade. He also talks about his greatest HPC concern: decreasing interest in classical simulation in […]

Accelerate Your Development of GPU Based Innovative Applications

In this sponsored post by our friends over at AMD, we take a deep into how GPUs have become an essential component of innovative organizations that require the highest performing clusters, whether one server or thousands of servers. Many High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Machine Learning (ML) applications have demonstrated tremendous performance gains by using one or more GPUs in conjunction with powerful CPUs. Over 25% of the Top500 list of the most powerful supercomputers on this planet use accelerators, specifically GPUs, to achieve teraflop and petaflop speeds.
