D-Wave Demonstrates Performance Advantage in Quantum Simulation of Exotic Magnetism

BURNABY, British Columbia — D-Wave Systems Inc., the quantum computing systems, software and services company, has published a milestone study in collaboration with scientists at Google, demonstrating a computational performance advantage, increasing with both simulation size and problem hardness, to over 3 million times that of corresponding classical methods. Notably, this work was achieved on a practical […]

At SC20: Nvidia Announces A100 80GB GPU

Nvidia today unveiled the A100 80GB GPU for the Nvidia HGXTM AI supercomputing platform with twice the memory of its predecessor. The new chip with HBM2e doubles the A100 40GB GPU’s high-bandwidth memory to 80GB and delivers more than 2TB/sec of memory bandwidth, according to Nvidia. The A100 80GB GPU is available in Nvidia DGX […]

Extreme Computing for Extreme Adaptive Optics: The Key to Finding Life Outside our Solar System

Hatem Ltaief from KAUST gave this talk at PASC18. “The real-time correction of telescopic images in the search for exoplanets is highly sensitive to atmospheric aberrations. The pseudo-inverse algorithm is an efficient mathematical method to filter out these turbulences. We introduce a new partial singular value decomposition (SVD) algorithm based on QR-based Diagonally Weighted Halley (QDWH) iteration for the pseudo-inverse method of adaptive optics. The pseudo-inverse simulation code will be deployed on-sky for the Subaru telescope during observation nights scheduled early 2018.”

Buying for Tomorrow: HPC Systems Procurement Matters

Ingrid Barcena from KU Leuven gave this talk at the HPC Knowledge Portal meeting in San Sebastián, Spain. “One of the biggest challenges when procuring High Performance Computing systems is to ensure that not only a faster machine than the previous one is bought but that the new system is well suited for the organization needs, fit within a limited budget and prove value for money. However, this is not a simple task and failing on buying the right HPC system can have tremendous consequences for an organization.”
