TSMC, Samsung to Hike Chip Prices

The HPC sector – in which systems utilize hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands of chips – is chip-price sensitive. Now comes news that two of the world’s most advanced chip manufacturers, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and Samsung, are warning customers they plan to raise prices significantly. Due to global inflation, rising electricity and […]

System Design Decisions to Achieve Faster Results in Drug Discovery

When it comes to drug discovery, research is everything. The ability to accelerate research can make or break a business and, of course, save lives. However, key design considerations in HPC infrastructure design can make a dramatic difference in performance and maximize your cluster’s value. How do you maximize HPC/AI performance? We recommend you start by using commodity off the shelf (COTS) components and best-of-breed technologies from trusted partners. This lets you get more nodes for your money. This also avoids the problem of vendor lock-in, and the associated risk of being trapped into higher prices without the corresponding improvement….

Composable Memory within CXL 2.0 Protocol Shown by Liqid, Samsung, Tanzanite

The Compute Express Link (CXL) Consortium is chasing the utopian tech dream, now being realized in an increasing number of high performance servers, of a high-speed, open-interface interconnect that enables the heterogenous Babel of CPUs and accelerators to talk to each other, to all get along. It’s a critically important capability for AI, machine learning […]

HPE Launches 2 HPC-AI Offerings for ML Implementation and and Collaboration

Two announcements today from HPE underscore the strategic imperative of combining HPC and AI — along with demand for systems that ease AI implementation complexity. HPE announced its Machine Learning Development System, designed to accelerate AI training models at scale. HPE said the system delivers value in days, rather than the typical weeks or months, […]

It’s Time to Resolve the Root Cause of Congestion

[SPONSORED POST] In this paper, Matthew Williams, CTO at Rockport Networks, explains how recent innovations in networking technologies have led to a new network architecture that targets the root causes of HPC network congestion. Congestion can delay workload completion times for crucial scientific and enterprise workloads, making HPC systems unpredictable and leaving high-cost cluster resources waiting for delayed data to arrive. Despite various brute-force attempts to resolve the congestion issue, the problem has persisted. Until now.
