Radio Free HPC:  Milan, Milan, Milan – and… How Will Intel Respond?

In this special episode, we break down AMD’s new EPYC 7003 series processor. We talk some speeds, plenty of feeds, look at their security defense, and talk about some world records. All in all, it’s an action-packed and fun episode, suitable for the entire family. In fact, we recommend you gather your family round to listen to this one as we’ll be talking about how the implications of this new CPU. Will it bring AMD back to their Opteron and dual-core glory days? Will it, as Opteron and dual-core did, prompt Intel into mounting a furious comeback? And how about the other chips on the horizon?

Intel Developing ASIC Accelerator for DARPA ‘Holy Grail’ Cybersecurity Project

Intel has joined the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Agency (DARPA) in a fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) program that takes aim at the “holy grail” of cybersecurity – protecting data during processing, when it is most vulnerable to attack. To date, FHE adoption has been slow because FHE methods on cryptograms is data-intensive and incurs a […]
