MIT Makes a Big Breakthrough in Nonsilicon Transistors

December 10, 2020

What if Silicon Valley moved beyond silicon? In the 80’s, Seymour Cray was asking the same question, delivering at Supercomputing 1988 a talk titled “What’s All This About Gallium Arsenide?” The supercomputing legend intended to make gallium arsenide (GaA) the material of the future... Read more…

How the Gordon Bell Prize Winners Used Summit to Illuminate Transistors

At SC19, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) awarded the prestigious Gordon Bell Prize to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich. The Read more…

Researchers Shrink Transistor Gate to One Nanometer

October 13, 2016

A team of US scientists may have just breathed new life into a faltering Moore’s law and advanced the limits of microelectronic miniaturization with the fabrication of a transistor with a 1nm gate. The breakthrough portends a path beyond silicon-based transistors, which have been widely predicted to hit a wall at 5-nanometers. Read more…

Intel’s Fryman: “It’s not that we love CMOS; it’s the only real choice.”

September 1, 2016

Forget for a moment the prevailing high anxiety over Moore’s Law’s fate. In the near-term – which could easily mean a decade – CMOS will remain the only viable, volume technology driving computing. Pursue alternatives? Of course, urged Josh Fryman, principal engineer and engineering manager, Intel. Read more…

Transistors Won’t Shrink Beyond 2021, Says Final ITRS Report

July 28, 2016

The final International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) is now out. The highly-detailed multi-part report, collaboratively published by a group of international semiconductor experts, offers guidance on the technological challenges and opportunities for the semiconductor industry through 2030. One of the major takeaways is the insistence that Moore's law will continue for some time even though traditional transistor scaling (through smaller feature sizes) is expected to hit an economic wall in 2021.

A New Standard in CAE Solutions for Manufacturing

Today, manufacturers of all sizes face many challenges. Not only do they need to deliver complex products quickly, they must do so with limited resources while continuously innovating and improving product quality. With the use of computer-aided engineering (CAE), engineers can design and test ideas for new products without having to physically build many expensive prototypes. This helps lower costs, enhance productivity, improve quality, and reduce time to market.

As the scale and scope of CAE grows, manufacturers need reliable partners with deep HPC and manufacturing expertise. Together with AMD, HPE provides a comprehensive portfolio of high performance systems and software, high value services, and an outstanding ecosystem of performance optimized CAE applications to help manufacturing customers reduce costs and improve quality, productivity, and time to market.

Read this whitepaper to learn how HPE and AMD set a new standard in CAE solutions for manufacturing and can help your organization optimize performance.

Porting CUDA Applications to Run on AMD GPUs

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.
