AMD Previews 400 Gig Adaptive SmartNIC SOC at Hot Chips

August 24, 2022

Fresh from finalizing its acquisitions of FPGA provider Xilinx (Feb. 2022) and DPU provider Pensando (May 2022) ), AMD previewed what it calls a 400 Gig Adaptive smartNIC SOC yesterday at Hot Chips. It is another contender in the increasingly crowded and blurry smartNIC/DPU space where distinguishing between the two isn’t always easy. The motivation for these device types... Read more…

HPCwire Quantum Survey: First Up – IBM and Zapata – on Algorithms, Error Mitigation, More

August 15, 2022

Quantum computing technology advances so quickly that it is hard to stay current. HPCwire recently asked a handful of senior researchers and executives for their thoughts on nearer-term progress and challenges. We’ll present their responses as they trickle in through the late summer and fall. (These execs take vacations too!) This... Read more…

Quantum Pioneer D-Wave Rings NYSE Bell, Begins Life as Public Company

August 8, 2022

D-Wave Systems, one of the early quantum computing pioneers, has completed its SPAC deal to go public. Its merger with DPCM Capital was completed last Friday, and today, D-Wave management rang the bell on the New York Stock Exchange. It is now trading under two ticker symbols – QBTS and QBTS WS (warrant shares), respectively. Welcome to the public... Read more…

AQT Reports Optimizing SWAP Networks for Quantum Computing

August 4, 2022

A research partnership at the Advanced Quantum Testbed (AQT) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and Chicago-based Super.tech (acquired by ColdQuanta in May 2022) has demonstrated how to optimize the execution of the ZZ SWAP network protocol, important to quantum computing. The team also introduced a new technique... Read more…

Zapata’s Orquestra Targets the Hybrid Quantum-Classical Challenge

July 28, 2022

As it’s become clearer that hybrid quantum-classical computing solutions will likely be necessary to achieve practical quantum computing, there’s been an in Read more…

The Race to Ensure Post Quantum Data Security

July 21, 2022

Fault-tolerant quantum computers won’t exist for years – a decade is the most common estimate. When they do arrive, thanks to Shor’s now-famous algorithm, they will be able to crack the most widely-used encryption methods, which are based on factoring. Earlier this month, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) settled on four... Read more…

New IBM Blog Details Path to Quantum Advantage in 2023

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.
