Radio Free HPC:  Cerebras AI Computing at EPCC and HPE’s Chippewa Falls Remodel

We have a full crew for this wide-ranging episode of RFHPC. We start with a discussion of the new Cerebras and HPE-based supercomputer slated for the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Center in, well, Edinburgh. We talk some feeds-and-speeds for the new boxes, particularly about the 400,000-core wafer Cerebras box, along with some of the workloads that will be […]

EPCC Selects Cerebras Systems AI Supercomputer

Los Altos, Calif. & Edinburgh, UK — Cerebras Systems, the high performance artificial intelligence (AI) compute company, and EPCC, the supercomputing centre at the University of Edinburgh, today announced the selection of what Cerebras said is the world’s fastest AI computer, the Cerebras CS-1, for EPCC’s new international data facility for the Edinburgh and southeastern […]

NETL, Cerebras Claim CFD Milestone

A collaboration between DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory and Cerebras Systems, maker of the CS-1 deep learning compute system,  has demonstrated that CS-1 could perform a key computational fluid dynamics (CFD) workload more than 200 times faster and at a fraction of the power consumption than the same workload on an optimized number of cores […]

Cerebras 1.2 Trillion Chip Integrated with LLNL’s Lassen System for AI Research  

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and AI company Cerebras Systems today announced the integration of the 1.2-trillion Cerebras’ Wafer Scale Engine (WSE) chip into the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) 23-petaflop Lassen supercomputer. The pairing of Lassen’s simulation capability with Cerebras’ machine learning compute system, along with the CS-1 accelerator system that houses the chip, […]

AI Supercomputer at PSC to Combine Cerebras ‘World’s Largest Chip’ and HPE Superdome Flex

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center has won a $5 million award from the National Science Foundation to build Neocortex, an AI supercomputer that incorporates the Cerebras Systems Wafer Scale Engine technology introduced last year along with Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s shared memory Superdome Flex hardware. PSC, a joint research organization of Carnegie Mellon University and the University […]

Why Hardware Acceleration Is The Next Battleground In Processor Design

In this special guest feature, Theodore Omtzigt from Stillwater Supercomputing writes that as workloads specialize due to scale, hardware accelerated solutions will continue to be cheaper than approaches that utilize general purpose components. “If you’re a CIO who manages integrations of third-party hardware and software, be aware of new hardware acceleration technologies that can reduce the cost of service delivery by orders of magnitude.”
