The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Argonne’s David Martin Talks Industrial HPC and Accessible Exascale

David Martin manages the Industry Partnerships and Outreach program at Argonne National Laboratory, and in this interview he talks about the never ending, always expanding demand for more power from HPC users – and the potential for the upcoming exascale systems, including Argonne’s Aurora, may be more accessible than might be expected. “I think that […]

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Simon Burbridge Gives ARM a Hand – ‘Maybe We Don’t Need to Have Accelerators’

At this point in the career of HPC luminary Simon Burbridge of the University of Bristol, he’s focused on HPC system design based on ARM-designed processors. Citing the world’s top ranked supercomputer, Japan’s Fugaku, Burbridge says in this interview: “If you redesign your CPUs to have the capability of doing the amount of math that you need and if you have, for example, the memory bandwidth to get those vectors and matrices in and out of the memory, then why wouldn’t they be better than a GPU?”
