Eni breaks into the TOP500 with the only private supercomputer to get into the top 10. Utilizing Intel’s latest Skylake-SP processors and packing close to 20 petaFLOPS of computing power, Eni is trying to revolutionize the way exploration & production research is conducted.
TOP500.org is celebrating its 50th list anniversary. But what does the list actually looks like? We have compiled some statistics to give you an insight into the list.
In preparation for the United States’ first exascale supercomputer, Intel announces they are cancelling next-generation Xeon Phi processors (codename Knights Hill) in favor of a brand new platform and microarchitecture specifically designed for exascale.
With the newly published Green500 list, Japan dominates the most power-efficient supercomputer list thanks to the ZettaScaler-2.2 architecture and PEZY’s PEZY-SC2 many-core processor.
PEZY-SC2 is PEZY’s newest 16nm a many-core processor featuring 2,048 cores that is powering the world’s most power-efficient supercomputer. The chip is the first to use a unique 3D packaging interconnect technology known as TCI in order to achieve a memory bandwidth of over 2 TB/s.
