AMD Expands Fusion Strategy with Petaflop Supercomputer

Jan 13, 2009 |

Back in June 2008, I suggested Sun Microsystems could accelerate its compute grid with GPU-based nodes. Sun never did, but it looks like AMD is going to give this idea a whirl.

The Search for Stable Storage

Nov 19, 2008 |

A team led by Thomas Schulthess of Oak Ridge National Laboratory has broken the petaflop barrier with a supercomputing application likely to accelerate the revolution in magnetic storage. Using ORNL’s upgraded Cray XT Jaguar supercomputer, the team was able to achieve a sustained performance of 1.05 petaflops for an application that simulates the behavior of electron systems.
