July has been rather quiet in the HPC space, but what better time to start looking ahead and preparing for the busy fall ahead, including the preeminent annual HPC event: SC14. Attendees won’t flock to this event until November 16, but SC planners are busy getting everything into place, including the core event offering: the Read more…

SC13 in Review: The Week’s Top Newsmakers

Nov 28, 2013 |

This year at SC13 we counted over 100 HPC-specific announcements that hit the wires over the course of the week, many of which were from vendors, organizations and users that we were within a short walk across the show floor in Denver. We wanted to point to some of the key newsmakers during the show, Read more…

NVIDIA Kepler Parts Top Green500

Nov 22, 2013 |

Twice a year, in step with the biannual TOP500 list, the Green500 list ranks the most powerful systems in the world based on energy-efficiency. Published Wednesday evening at SC13, this year’s Green500 list continues a trend from previous years, the rise of heterogenous supercomputing. The latest list shows that the top 10 greenest systems are Read more…

For Wilfred Pinfold, Director of Research and Advanced Technology Development at Intel, like so many others it’s the people and the power of face-to-face communication in an increasingly virtual-based world. Pinfold discusses the Read more…

Titan Runs 15 Petaflop Superconductor Simulation

Nov 15, 2013 |

A research feature at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing website explores how sheer computing speed and algorithm improvements have put an international team of scientists in the running for this year’s Gordon Bell Prize. The team from ETH Zurich in Switzerland and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have performed simulations of high-temperature superconductors topping 15 Read more…

The Show Goes On…
