Blue Waters will be composed of more than 235 Cray XE6 cabinets based on the recently announced AMD Opteron™ 6200 Series processor and more than 30 cabinets of a future version of the recently announced Cray XK6 supercomputer with NVIDIA Tesla GPU computing capability incorporated into a single, powerful hybrid supercomputer.
Fujitsu will be exhibiting at the SC11 international conference for High-Performance Computing, to be held November 12-18 in Seattle, Washington
The Japanese have broken the 10 petaflop barrier. On Wednesday November 2nd, Japanese IT giant Fujitsu and the government-funded RIKEN researcoh lab announced that the supercomputer they’ve built in Kobe can speed through 10.51 quadrillion floating point operations per second.
The new system will employ the latest AMD Opteron central processing units as well as NVIDIA Tesla graphics processing units — energy-efficient processors that accelerate specific types of calculations in scientific application codes. The last phase of the upgrade is expected to be completed in late 2012.
The International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) is an IEEE-recognized global conference and exhibition for high performance computing, networking and storage. ISC is moving into its 27th year of providing a platform for 2,300 like-minded HPC researchers, technology leaders, scientists and IT-decision makers to get together and find solutions for HPC challenges.
In this paper we present the programming of the Linpack benchmark on TianHe-1 system, the first petascale supercomputer system of China, and the largest GPU-accelerated heterogeneous system ever attempted before. A hybrid programming model consisting of MPI, OpenMP and streaming computing is described to explore the task parallel, thread parallel and data parallel of the Linpack.
The 2011 Spring Simulation Multiconference will feature the 19th High Performance Computing Symposium (HPC 2011), devoted to the impact of high performance computing and communications on computer simulations.
