Roll Over von Neumann? Samsung Claims Progress on the Compute-Memory Divide for HPC, AI

Samsung is claiming progress on the ages-old compute-memory bottleneck inherent in the classical von Neumann computing architecture. The company has announced what it said is the industry’s first High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) integrated with artificial intelligence (AI) processing power — the HBM-PIM. The company said the processing-in-memory (PIM) architecture brings AI computing capabilities inside high-performance […]

Why the Choice of DRAM in the Data Center is so Critical

By working with a manufacturer of DRAM products that deliver a diversity of components, data center operators can be assured that they will not have a patchwork of suppliers to work with. This guest post from Kingston Technology explores different storage structures and why DRAM performance is so crucial to data center success. 

Podcast: Micron’s Steve Pawlowski on the Latest Memory Trends for HPC

In this podcast from ISC 2016 in Frankfurt, Steve Pawlowski from Micron discusses the latest memory technology trends for high performance computing. “When you look at a technology like 3D XPoint and some of the new materials the industry is looking at, those latencies are becoming more DRAM-like, which makes them a more attractive option to look at. Is there a way we can actually inject persistent memory that’s fairly high-performance so we don’t take a performance hit but we can certainly increase the capacity on a cost-per-bit basis versus what we have today?”
