AMD Delays Barcelona Ramp-Up to Q1 2008

AMD has announced that it has revised its plan to ramp-up production [and subsequent availability] of the quad-core Barcelona chips from Q4 of 2007 to Q1 of 2008. In October, they stated that Barcelona silicon would be “widely available” by the end of the year. There has been widespread speculation that the major delay in […]

"Cluster" no longer a meaningful designation?

Writing in HPCwire last week Addison Snell argues briefly that it’s more meaningful to denote when a supercomputer isn’t a cluster than when it is, and looks at three new HPC startups: SiCortex, Liquid Computing, and Convey. I hadn’t heard of Convey.

How can we overcome bus saturation in multi-core systems?

Multi-core systems, in combination with specialized co-processors for hefty tasks, are hailed as the future of high-performance computing. In a bus-based architecture, the environment is an SMP in which all of the memory is accessible by all of the processors in the same amount of time. This setup works well for a few cores, but […]
