Chasing 1000X: The Future of Supercomputing Is Unbalanced

Oct 10, 2012 |

<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/digital_time_tunnel_small.jpg” alt=”” width=”92″ height=”92″ />The supercomputing community tends to think in 1000X increments – gigaflops, teraflops, petaflops, and soon, exaflops. It’s all about hardware performance. But if we really want HPC that’s a thousand times better than what came before, advances will have to come from sources beyond just servers and CPUs.

Terascale Memory Challenges and Solutions

Dec 6, 2010 |

In contrast to the previous decade, CPU clock rates are scaling slower over time due to the power constraints. However, the number of transistors per silicon area continue to increase roughly at the rate of Moore’s Law. Therefore, CPUs are being designed and built with an increasing number of cores, with each core executing one or more threads of instructions. This puts a new kind of pressure on the memory subsystem.
