AMD Taken to Task on HPC Investment

Jul 10, 2013 |

This week we talked with AMD’s GM of the Server Business Unit, Andrew Feldman about his company’s role in the future of HPC. We asked how invested they are in the future of this market, what technologies will push their drive forward, and where they see the biggest opportunities in high performance computing. Interestingly, we found that….

Oak Ridge National Laboratory Helps Advance Scientific Discovery with HPC

Jan 9, 2012 |

<p>The impact of using supercomputers to solve complex calculations and simulate atomic structure behavior is tremendous, reducing some scientific research (such as this Germanium-72 experiment) from months to less than a week. In a short period of time scientists can now perform many more experiments and advance discovery in real-time.</p>

Appro Corrals Another Win at Los Alamos with Mustang Super

Oct 12, 2011 |

Appro is doing a brisk business over at the Department of Energy. After winning the DOE’s second Tri-Lab Linux Capacity Cluster contact back in June, Appro has been tapped once again to provide Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) with yet another high performance computing cluster. The new Mustang supercomputer, installed there last month, will give the lab another 353 teraflops of number crunching capacity.

Video Interview: The AMD Path to HPC Clouds

Jun 16, 2011 |

This week at the AMD Fusion Developer Summit we sat down with AMD’s Margaret Lewis to discuss the role the chipmaker will play in the high-performance clouds of the future, how its Opteron has served as a cloud datacenter foundation, and what the future holds following the introduction of Bulldozer later this year.
