Lenovo Standing Up Liquid-cooled Neptune System at Max Planck Society

Lenovo is installing a Neptune liquid cooled supercomputer at the Max Planck Society, a delivery that began two months ago and is scheduled to be completed early next year. The €20 million project includes a 100,000-core Neptune comprised of Lenovo ThinkSystem servers with  Intel CPUs (unspecified) and Nvidia Tesla A100 GPUs, software and operational support, […]

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Rich Brueckner and Mike Bernhardt Talk Exascale and HPC Marketing: How the HPC Community Tells its Story to the World

After more than three decades in supercomputing as a strategic marketing and communications executive, Mike Bernhardt has seen the HPC community evolve through the many phases of its existence. A “Perennial” (see below) at the annual SC industry conference, Bernhardt remains fascinated by the connection between leading-edge computation and scientific discovery. “In many ways, it’s […]

SeRC Turns to oneAPI Multi-Chip Programming Model for Accelerated Research

At ISC 2020 Digital, the Swedish e-Science Research Center (SeRC), Stockholm, has announced plans to use Intel’s oneAPI unified programming language by researchers conducting  massive simulations powered by CPUs and GPUs. The center said it chose the oneAPI programming model, designed to span CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and other architectures and silicon,  to accelerate compute for research using GROMACS (GROningen MAchine for Chemical Simulations) molecular dynamics software, developed by SeRC and first released in 1991

New Intel Technologies Highlighted in SC16 Announcements

Here’s a recap of SC16 announcements from Intel that are designed to provide even more powerful capabilities to address HPC challenges like energy efficiency, system complexity, and the ability for simplified workload customization. In supercomputing, one size certainly does not fit all. Intel’s new and updated technologies take a step forward in addressing these issues, allowing users to focus more on their applications for HPC, not the technology behind it.

See What’s New from Intel at ISC 2016

New HPC products and technologies. Compelling demos. Insights from top Intel HPC architects. More than 60 presentations from Intel and industry experts. Additional details about Intel® Scalable System Framework. Intel will have something for everyone at this year’s International Supercomputing Conference in Frankfurt, Germany.

Podcast: Intel Moves HPC Forward with Broadwell Family of Xeon Processors

In this podcast, Rich Brueckner interviews Hugo Saleh, Director of Marketing for the Intel High Performance Computing Platform Group. They discuss the new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family, based upon the Broadwell microarchitecture, and the first processor within Intel® Scalable System Framework (Intel® SSF). Hugo describes how the new processors improve HPC performance and examine the impact of Intel® SSF on vastly different procurements ranging from the massive 200 Petaflops Aurora system to small and large enterprise clusters plus scientific systems.
