Thanks to shrinking semiconductor process geometries, the newest FPGAs have more usable transistors than ever before and are now capable of considerable floating point (FP) performance. That makes them candidates for more generalized use in high performance computing. This article describes the FP capabilities of Xilinx’s new Virtex-7 FPGA and how it stacks up against a generic 16-core CPU. Read more…

Although 2010 still has a few months left to go, the competition in the x86 server processor arena for 2011 is already setting up to be a knock-down, drag-out fight. Both AMD and Intel are introducing new high-end server chips with revamped microarchitectures next year, and, at the same time, upping the core counts over their previous generation products.

Did you miss out on Supercomputing 2017? Did you attend, but were stuck in meetings the whole time without an opportunity to walk the show floor and see what new announcements were being made? HPCwire's got you covered, we visited some of the hottest booths in the exhibit hall and spoke with their top executives to get the scoop on the latest solutions, partnerships, and product announcements.
From mismatches between compute and storage capabilities to colossal data volumes, data storage presents a number of challenges for scientific research. And as silos pop up and challenges expand, the pace of research often suffers.
As genomic data becomes ubiquitous, infrastructure bottlenecks for life sciences organizations are narrowing. But speedy analysis and real-time decision making don't have to remain out of reach: modern end-to-end systems are emerging as flexible solutions for a competitive edge.
