HPE Demonstrates Exascale Hardware: AMD’s and Intel’s Platforms Exposed

At the International Supercomputer (ISC 2022) trade show, HPE demonstrated blade systems that will power two exascale supercomputers set to come online this year — Frontier and Aurora. Unfortunately, HPE had to use sophisticated and power-hungry hardware to get unprecedented computing performance. Hence, both machines use liquid cooling, but even massive water blocks cannot hide…

AMD-Powered Frontier Supercomputer Breaks the Exascale Barrier, Now Fastest in the World

(Image credit: ORNL) The AMD-powered Frontier supercomputer is now the first officially recognized exascale supercomputer in the world, topping 1.102 ExaFlop/s during a sustained Linpack run, ranking first on the newly-released Top500 list of the world’s fastest supercomputers. The system not only overtakes the previous leader, Japan’s Fugaku, but blows it out of the water…
