“The ASC 2018 Student Supercomputer Challenge finalist were announced on March 20, 2018. The 20 finalists will design and build supercomputers up to 3,000 Watts, solve exceptionally difficult problems in AI reading comprehension, perform RELION optimization as a core application of the Nobel winning cryo-electron microscopy, and utilize CFL3D, HPL, and HPCG.”

ASC18 Student Cluster Competition to include 230 Teams

The 2018 ASC Student Supercomputer Challenge (ASC18) will begin on January 16, 2018. First launched in 2012, the competition will feature a whopping 230 student teams looking to build the fastest possible cluster with a power cap of 3 Kilowatts. “The USA Student Cluster Competition is like a marathon, testing participants’ hard work and perseverance,” said OrionX partner Dan Olds, who has covered all three major supercomputing challenges. “Germany’s ISC is a sprint, testing innovation and adaptability. China’s ASC is a combination of both.”
