Proposals Open to Research Community for ALCF AI Testbed’s Cerebras and SambaNova Systems

Proposals are now being accepted by the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility for access to its AI Testbed, a collection of advanced artificial intelligence accelerators available for science. Researchers interested in using the AI Testbed’s Cerebras CS-2 and SambaNova DataScale systems can submit project proposals via the ALCF’s Director’s Discretionary program. Access to additional testbed resources, including Graphcore, Groq, and Habana accelerators, will be […]

More ‘EPYC’ Options for HPC

[SPONSORED CONTENT]  High performance computing (HPC) often sets trends for the data center. Driving innovation, adding new functionality, and enabling simulations to deliver more accuracy, finer details, and insights. Recently AMD released four new AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors with AMD 3D V-Cache™ technology. Socket compatible with existing EPYC 7003 processors, the AMD 3D V-Cache […]

World Quantum Day: Intel and QuTech Collaborate on Silicon Qubits

April 14, 2022 — Researchers at Intel and QuTech, an advanced quantum computing research center consisting of the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), report they have successfully created the first silicon qubits at scale at Intel’s D1 manufacturing factory in Hillsboro, Oregon. The result is […]

NVIDIA Introduces 144-Core Grace CPU ‘Superchip’ for AI, HPC

NVIDIA dropped its attempted acquisition of Arm Ltd. earlier this year, but it remains an Arm technology licensee. And today, in a bid to take on the x86 architecture’s long dominance in data center server chips, the company announced its first Arm Neoverse-based data center CPU “designed for AI infrastructure and high performance computing, providing […]

@HPCpodcast: Argonne’s Rick Stevens Surveys Trends and Technologies Driving AI for Science — Part 1

If HPC had a band of rock stars, Rick Stevens might well be lead guitarist and do the vocals. The associate lab director and Exascale Computing Initiative leader at Argonne National Lab (and professor at the University of Chicago) has one of the most impressive records of sustained achievement in the HPC community. Here, in part one of a two-part episode of the @HPCpodcast, Stevens takes up the topic of AI is changing the face of science from the points of view of a scientist and a computer scientist.

High Performance Computing for R&D

[SPONSORED POST] In this eBook, “High Performance Computing for R&D,” sponsored by Rescale, Microsoft Azure and AMD, we take a look at HPC deployments in support of R&D efforts. In many ways, the HPC solution in the cloud offered by Rescale on Azure delivers an unprecedented amount of power while solving for many crucial and common challenges faced by R&D and design teams across many industries.

Edge NVMe Storage for Autonomous Vehicles

In this sponsored post, Braden Cooper, Product Marketing Manager at One Stop Systems, indicates that as new developments and technologies in HPC are introduced, the need for more capture, compute, and storage in autonomous vehicles will continue to grow.  To meet the throughput required by the latest GPUs, NVMe storage must be integrated into autonomous vehicles in a rugged and easily removable form factor. 

AMD Infinity Hub: Channeling the Power of AMD Accelerators for Faster Time-to-Science

[Sponsored Content] GPUs have revolutionized HPC and AI, carrying advanced performance forward where Moore’s Law dropped off. The result: exploding global demand for the chips. The GPU market reached $87 billion for 2021 with a projected CAGR of 33 percent through 2025, according to a December report by market analyst firm ReportLinker. Combining lightning-fast compute […]

TACC Using GRC Liquid Cooling in Lonestar6 Supercomputer

GRC (Green Revolution Cooling), a single-phase liquid immersion cooling company for data centers, today announced that it is providing the cooling infrastructure for the Lonestar6 supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). The company’s ICEraQ Series 10 will cool the Dell C6525 servers, which contain AMD EPYC “Milan” CPUs, used within TACC’s Lonestar6 supercomputer, a […]

Intersect360 Research White Paper: Microsoft Azure Delivers HPC Now And Into The Future With AMD

[SPONSORED POST] Highlighted in this white paper by Intersect360 Research, the fastest growing provider of HPC cloud solutions has been Microsoft Azure. Azure’s momentum is based on completeness of services and solutions for HPC, and this is reflected in the loyalty of Azure users. Microsoft Azure has a greater proportion of its HPC users likely to increase their usage in the future. Meanwhile, in recent years, HPC has seen a new surge in compute from Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD). As both AMD and Azure have surged in HPC, Microsoft is combining both with its HBv3 instances, featuring AMD EPYC 7003 processors.
