Lessons on Integrating and Utilizing 10 Million Cores: Experience of Sunway TaihuLight

Haohuan Fu gave this Invited Talk at SC17 in Denver. “The Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer is the world’s first system with a peak performance greater than 100 PFlops and a parallel scale of over 10 million cores. Different from other existing heterogeneous supercomputers, the system adopts its unique design strategies in both the architecture of its 260-core Shenwei CPU and its way of integrating 40,960 such CPUs as 40 powerful cabinets. This talk will first introduce and discuss design philosophy about the approach to integrate these 10 million cores, at both the processor and the system level.”
