Ubiquitous Parallelism and the Classroom

Nov 20, 2009 |

The oft-contended best simple statement is that we need ubiquitous parallelism in the classroom. In the near future, most electronic devices will have multiple cores which would benefit greatly from parallel programming. The low hanging fruit is, of course, the student’s laptop, and aiding the student to make full use of that laptop.

Exascale Expectations

Supercomputer performance has grown at a fairly constant rate of a 1,000-fold increase per decade. Will the sprint to exascale be able to hold that pace?

Reconfigurable Computing Research Pushes Forward

Nov 20, 2009 |

Despite all the all the recent hoopla about GPGPUs and eight-core CPUs, proponents of reconfigurable computing continue to sing the praises of FPGA-based HPC. We got the opportunity to ask Dr. Alan George, who runs the NSF Center for High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing, about the work going on there and what he thinks the technology can offer to high performance computing users.
