IBM Launches 7nm POWER10 CPU

IBM today announced a new IBM POWER10 CPU family, its first 7nm form factor platform, built with Samsung, designed for enterprise hybrid cloud computing with up to 3x greater processor energy efficiency, workload capacity, and container density than its predecessor, according to the company. According to IBM, POWER10 highlights include: Support for multi-petabyte memory clusters […]

Exascale Exasperation: Why DOE Gave Intel a 2nd Chance; Can Nvidia GPUs Ride to Aurora’s Rescue?

The most talked-about topic in HPC these days – another Intel chip delay and therefore delay of the U.S.’s flagship Aurora exascale system – is something no one directly involved wants to talk about. Not Argonne National Laboratory, where Intel was to install Aurora in 2021; not the Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project, guiding […]
