Intel: I Was Lostry, But Now I Am Foundry

Pat Gelsinger, current chief executive officer at Intel and formerly the head of its Data Center Group as well as its chief technology officer, famously invented the tick-tock method of chip launches to bring some order and reason to the way the world’s largest chip maker – as it was in the mid-2000s – mitigated risk and spurred innovation in its products.

OSC Blends Intel HBM CPUs And Nvidia HBM GPUs For “Cardinal” Supercomputer

For a lot of state universities in the United States, and their equivalent political organizations of regions or provinces in other nations across the globe, it is a lot easier to find extremely interested undergraduate and graduate students who want to contribute to the font of knowledge in high performance computing than it is to find the budget to build a top-notch supercomputer of reasonable scale.

Arista Networks Conservatively Awaits Its AI Boom

As a founding member of the Ultra Ethernet Consortium, which has the express purpose of making Ethernet as good for AI and HPC clusters as InfiniBand but with the scalability and familiarity of Ethernet, Arista Networks wants to benefit mightily from the AI wave that is coming to enterprise datacenters the world over.

Nvidia’s “Grace” Arm CPU Holds Its Own Against X86 For HPC

In many ways, the “Grace” CG100 server processor created by Nvidia – its first true server CPU and a very useful adjunct for extending the memory space of its “Hopper” GH100 GPU accelerators – was designed perfectly for HPC simulation and modeling workloads.

With Vista, TACC Now Has Three Paths To Its Future Horizon Supercomputer

The national supercomputing centers in the United States, Europe, and China are not only rich enough to build very powerful machines, but they are rich enough, thanks to their national governments, to underwrite and support multiple and somewhat incompatible architectures to hedge their bets and mitigate their risk.

The Tough Road Still Ahead For Intel In The Datacenter

A few years back, when Intel went up on the rocks with its CPU and GPU designs largely because its chip research and manufacturing did not keep pace with the manufacturing and packaging advances made by foundry rival Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co, we said that we were rapidly moving towards a world where Intel might have 40 percent of the CPU market, AMD might have 40 percent, and Arm and RISC-V would fight over the remaining 19 percent and 1 percent remaining for other exotic datacenter compute engine chippery.

Big Blue Bucks The Datacenter Server Recession

Some patterns are very hard to break. From the very early days of the systems business as we know it, which started six decades ago, the fourth quarter of the calendar year has been the money maker for companies like IBM, and the second quarter has been a relatively big one for those who could not get their budgets together before the end of the prior year.
