Exascale Update from Hyperion Research

Bob Sorensen from Hyperion Research gave this talk at the HPC User Forum in Detroit. “The four geographies actively developing Exascale machines are: USA, China, Europe, and Japan. While it is important to emphasize that this is not a race, the first machine to achieve Exascale in terms of sustained LINPACK should be the A21 Aurora system at Argonne in 2021. It will be followed soon after by machines from all the other active projects.”

Radio Free HPC Looks at China’s Exascale System Prototypes

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at China’s new ARM-based Exascale supercomputer prototype. “The Sunway exascale computer prototype is very much like a concept car that can run on road,” said Yang Meihong, director of the National Supercomputing Center in Jinan. “We expect to build the exascale computer in the second half of 2020 or the first half of 2021.”

Radio Free HPC Looks at China’s Three-Pronged Plan for Exascale

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team goes through a fascinating presentation that provides details on China’s Three-Pronged Plan for Exascale. “China may not be the first to Exascale, but they are building three divergent architectural prototypes that pave the way forward. We’ve got the details in this not-to-miss podcast.”
