All-AMD LUMI Becomes Europe’s Most Powerful Supercomputer

EuroHPC ‘s Joint Undertaking recently deployed Europe’s first pre-exascale supercomputer, LUMI, in Finland’s city of Kajaani. The all-AMD build ranks as the 3rd fastest computer according to the Top500 rankings owing to its 550 Petaflops performance. It also claims the title of the world’s third-greenest supercomputer, thanks to the impressive energy efficiency of the Epyc…

Researchers Benchmark Experimental RISC-V Supercomputer

Researchers Benchmark Experimental RISC-V Supercomputer

A group of researchers from the Università di Bologna and Cineca has explored an experimental eight-node 32-core RISC-V supercomputer cluster. The demonstration showed that even a bunch of humble SiFive’s Freedom U740 system-on-chips could run supercomputer applications at relatively low power. Moreover, the cluster worked well and supported a baseline high-performance computing stack. Need for…

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…
