Intel Weaves Strategy To Put Interconnect Fabrics On Chip

September 10, 2012

Intel has begun to formulate a strategy that will integrate fabric controllers with its server processors. According to Raj Hazra, general manager of the Technical Computing unit at Intel, the company is planning to use the recently acquired IP from Cray, QLogic and Fulcrum to deliver chips that put what is essentially a NIC onto the processor die. In a recent conversation with Hazra, he outlined their new fabric interconnect strategy. Read more…

Adapteva Unveils 64-Core Chip

August 22, 2012

Chipmaker Adapteva is sampling its 4th-generation multicore processor, known as Epiphany-IV. The 64-core chip delivers a peak performance of 100 gigaflops and draws just two watts of power, yielding a stunning 50 gigaflops/watt. The engineering samples were manufactured by GLOBALFOUNDRIES on its latest 28nm process technology. Read more…

Analyst Weighs In on 64-Bit ARM

August 16, 2012

In a recent report in Real World Technologies, chip guru David Kanter dissects the new 64-bit ARM design and what it might mean to the IT landscape. His take on the architecture is almost uniformly positive, noting that not only did the designers manage to develop an elegant instruction set that was backwardly compatible with the existing ISA, but they also took the extra step to jettison a few of the poorly designed features of the 32-bit architecture.

End-to-End Support Toward Accelerating Discovery and Innovation with a Converged HPC and AI Supercomputer

A workload-driven system capable of running HPC/AI workloads is more important than ever. Organizations face many challenges when building a system capable of running HPC and AI workloads. There are also many complexities in system design and integration. Building a workload driven solution requires expertise and domain knowledge that organizational staff may not possess.

This paper describes how Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a long-time Intel® partner, developed the Taiwania 2 and Taiwania 3 supercomputers to meet the research needs of the Taiwan’s academic, industrial, and enterprise users. The Taiwan National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) selected QCT for their expertise in building HPC/AI supercomputers and providing worldwide end-to-end support for solutions from system design, through integration, benchmarking and installation for end users and system integrators to ensure customer success.
