Heterogeneous Computing and HPC Accelerators, Disruptive Technologies in the Making

Jun 18, 2011 |

At this week’s International Supercomputing Conference in Hamburg, Germany, two of the biggest topics on the agenda are heterogeneous architectures and GPU/accelerator computing. Those emerging trends are joined at the hip, thanks mostly to the efforts of NVIDIA and their industry partners. Intel’s ongoing plans for its Many Integrated Core (MIC) co-processor and AMD’s introduction of its CPU-GPU “Fusion” processors are yet additional indications that the industry is moving to an architecture where CPUs married to accelerators will provide the next big seismic shift in high performance computing.
