HPC Myths Need Not Hamper the Technology’s Growth

In this special guest feature, Kristin Hansen, Chief Marketing Officer at Bright Computing writes that HPC doesn’t need to be held back by commonly held misconceptions.

Six Myths of HPC for Engineering Simulation

“A decade ago, HPC may have indeed been primarily associated with big supercomputers. However, the computer industry has delivered enormous increases in computing speed and power at consistently lower costs. Think about more compute cores per CPU, integrated I/O on processor die (yielding higher memory bandwidth), more and faster memory (channels), larger L3 cache size, faster disk storage (like solid-state drives for ANSYS Mechanical), faster interconnects, AVX support, etc. Through these advances made I can counter this myth #1 by stating that HPC is today available throughout the entire computer spectrum.”
