The Week in Review

Aug 26, 2010 |

Researchers from TACC and MIT created lightweight supercomputing application for smart phone; and the tug of war over 3PAR continues, as Dell and HP both present counter-offers. We recap those stories and more in our weekly wrapup.

Startup Aims to Transform Computing with Probability Processing

Aug 16, 2010 |

MIT spin-out Lyric Semiconductor Inc. has launched a new breed of integrated circuits that replaces the binary logic of traditional computing with probabilistic logic. The aim is to deliver a much more efficient architecture for applications based on probability computing. For these types of workloads, the company is promising orders-of-magnitude improvement in energy efficiency, performance and cost.

MIT’s StarCluster: An Update with Screencast

May 21, 2010 |

Last week we ran a feature article from Justin Riley entitled, “StarCluster Brings HPC to the Amazon Cloud” that drew significant attention from the community. The author was kind enough to send a screencast for HPC in the Cloud that provides a more thorough view of StarCluster in action.
