The three chipmakers have taken somewhat different paths, though, and it will be up to the market to decide which vendor’s approach will win the day.
<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Cray_XC30_small.jpg” alt=”” width=”95″ height=”86″ />AMD-loving Cray has launched the XC30 supercomputer, a product line that will be powered by Intel Xeon processors. The platform is based on the company’s “Cascade” architecture, which is designed to bring a variety of processors and coprocessors under a common infrastructure. XC will become Cray’s flagship computing platform as it phases out its XE and XK line over the next year or so.

Even as we gain a footing in the era of petaflops computing, we have set in motion the exploration of the undiscovered domain of exaflops computing. This year has seen the launching of multiple programs to develop the concepts, architectures, software stack, programming models, and new families of parallel algorithms necessary to enable the practical realization of exaflops capability prior to the end of this decade.
