Xilinx Targets HPC and Datacenter with New Alveo U55C FPGA-Card

November 15, 2021

At SC21 today, Xilinx launched its most powerful FPGA-based accelerator card – the Alveo U55C – specifically targeting HPC workloads and the datacenter. FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) have a long productive history as customized accelerator chips used in many embedded applications. It’s only in the last few years that FPGA suppliers have begun... Read more…

Nvidia Debuts Quantum-2 Networking Platform with NDR InfiniBand and BlueField-3 DPU

November 10, 2021

Nvidia yesterday introduced Quantum-2, its new networking platform that features NDR InfiniBand (400 Gbps) and Bluefield-3 DPU (data processing unit) capabilities. The name is perhaps confusing – it’s not a quantum computing device and even Nvidia is getting into the true quantum computing market with its cuQuantum simulator. The name stems from the legacy line of Nvidia/Mellanox Quantum switches. That said, the new Quantum-2 platform specs are impressive. Jensen Huang, Nvidia CEO, introduced... Read more…

Argonne AI for Science Colloquium Marks Challenges and Progress

November 9, 2021

It’s an understatement to say the effort to adapt AI technology for use in scientific computing has gained steam. Last spring, the Department of Energy released a formal report – AI for Science – suggesting an AI program not unlike the exascale program reaching fruition now. There’s also the broader U.S. National Artificial Intelligence Initiative pushing for AI use throughout society. Last week, as part of a year-long celebration of its 75th founding anniversary, Argonne National Laboratory held... Read more…

SPEC Introduces SPEChpc 2021Suite for Heterogeneous Systems

October 28, 2021

SPEC – the Standard Performance Evaluation Company – introduced its newest benchmark suite today, SPEChpc 2021, intended to measure “intense compute paral Read more…

Purdue Researchers Peer into the ‘Fog of the Machine Learning Accelerator War’

September 27, 2021

Making sense of ML performance and benchmark data is an ongoing challenge. In light of last week’s release of the most recent MLPerf (v1.1) inference results, now is perhaps a good time to review how valuable (or not) such ML benchmarks are and the challenges they face. Two researchers... Read more…

Qubit Stream: Monte Carlo Advance, Infosys Joins the Fray, D-Wave Meeting Plans, and More

September 23, 2021

It seems the stream of quantum computing reports never ceases. This week – IonQ and Goldman Sachs tackle Monte Carlo on quantum hardware, Cambridge Quantum pu Read more…

The Latest MLPerf Inference Results: Nvidia GPUs Hold Sway but Here Come CPUs and Intel

September 22, 2021

The latest round of MLPerf inference benchmark (v 1.1) results was released today and Nvidia again dominated, sweeping the top spots in the closed (apples-to-ap Read more…

AI Hardware Summit: Panel on Memory Looks Forward

September 15, 2021

What will system memory look like in five years? Good question. While Monday's panel, Designing AI Super-Chips at the Speed of Memory, at the AI Hardware Summit, tackled several topics, the panelists also took a brief glimpse into the future. Unlike compute, storage and networking, which... Read more…
