How Cray Makes Ethernet Suited For HPC And AI With Slingshot

Last fall, supercomputer maker Cray announced that it was getting back to making high performance cluster interconnects after a six year hiatus, but the company had already been working on its “Rosetta” switch ASIC for the Slingshot interconnect for quite a while before it started talking publicly about it.

Nvidia Readies For Battle In The Datacenter In 2020

If you were expecting Nvidia to start talking about its future “Einstein” GPUs for Tesla accelerated computing soon just because AMD is getting ready to roll out “Navi” GPUs next year and Intel is working on its Xe GPU cards for delivery next year, too, you are going to have to wait a bit longer.

Counting The Cost Of Scaling HPC Applications

It is very rare indeed to get benchmark data on HPC applications that shows it scaling over a representative number of nodes, and it is never possible to get cost allocations presented that allow for price/performance comparisons to be made for clusters of different physical sizes and the increase in throughput that more scale brings.

Nvidia Makes Arm A Peer To X86 And Power For GPU Acceleration

Creating the Tesla GPU compute platform has taken Nvidia the better part of a decade and a half, and it has culminated in a software stack comprised of various HPC and AI frameworks, the CUDA parallel programming environment, compilers from Nvidia’s PGI division and their OpenACC extensions as well as open source GCC compilers, and various other tools that together account for tens of millions of lines of code and tens of thousands of individual APIs.
