Petaflop In a Box

June 6, 2012

As we move down the road toward exascale computing and engage in discussion of zettascale, one issue becomes increasingly obvious: we are leaving a large part of the HPC community behind. But it needn't be so. If we developed compact, power efficient petascale computers, not only could we help broaden the base of high-end users, but we could also provide a foundation for future bleeding-edge supercomputers.

Compilers and More: Programming at Exascale

March 8, 2011

There are at least two ways exascale computing can go, as exemplified by the top two systems on the latest TOP500 list: Tianhe-1A and Jaguar. The Chinese Tianhe-1A uses 14,000 Intel multicore processors with 7,000 NVIDIA Fermi GPUs as compute accelerators, whereas the American Jaguar Cray XT-5 uses 35,000 AMD 6-core processors. Read more…
