Arm Throwing Elbows: LRZ to Deploy Arm-based HPE Cray CS500

It’s been a good week for Arm: the Fugaku supercomputer at Japan’s Riken research center was named no. 1 on the TOP500 listing of the world’s most powerful HPC systems, and today, the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) in Munich announced it will deploy HPE’s Cray CS500 with Fujitsu A64FX chips based on the Arm architecture – the same processor used in Fugaku (and then there’s Apple switching from x86 for new Arm chips).

Samsung Mass Producing HBM2 – World’s Fastest DRAM

Today Samsung Electronics announced that it has begun mass producing the industry’s first 4-gigabyte DRAM package based on the second-generation High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) interface, for use in high performance computing, advanced graphics and network systems, as well as enterprise servers. Samsung’s new HBM solution will offer unprecedented DRAM performance – more than seven times faster than the current DRAM performance limit, allowing faster responsiveness for high-end computing tasks including parallel computing, graphics rendering and machine learning.
