Chips Evolve for Data Intensive Niches

“Data centric workloads are growing in importance in high-performance computing and, in an industry that has been dominated by a handful of technologies for several years, this has led users to look for new technologies which better suit such jobs. The demand now is for low power, high memory, and I/O-intensive solutions, so there is a growing niche which can be addressed by solutions which are less focused on Flops performance.”

Alternatives to x86: Future Processing Technologies

In the second article in his series on future hardware for HPC, Robert Roe from Scientific Computing World looks at alternatives to the x86, including server on a chip and OpenPower.
