World’s First Exascale Supercomputer Powered by AMD EPYC™ Processors and AMD Instinct™ Accelerators

— Fron­tier super­com­pu­ter, powe­red by AMD EPYC CPUs and AMD Instinct Acce­le­ra­tors, achie­ves num­ber one spots on Top500, Green500 and HPL-AI per­for­mance lists, an indus­try first —

AMD powers five of the top ten most power­ful and eight of the top ten most effi­ci­ent super­com­pu­ters in the world —

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) show­ca­sed its con­ti­nued lea­ders­hip in high per­for­mance com­pu­ting (HPC) by powe­ring the fas­test and the most ener­gy effi­ci­ent super­com­pu­ters in the world, accord­ing to the latest Top500 and Green500 lists.

Oak Ridge Natio­nal Laboratory’s (ORNL) Fron­tier sys­tem sub­mit­ted its very first score to the Top500 list of 1.1 exa­flops, making it the world’s fas­test super­com­pu­ter and the first to break the exas­ca­le bar­ri­er. Frontier’s per­for­mance is more than dou­ble the num­ber two sys­tem and grea­ter than the sum of the next seven sys­tems on the latest Top500 list.

In addi­ti­on, the Fron­tier test and deve­lo­p­ment sys­tem (TDS) secu­red the top spot on the Green500 list, deli­vering 62.68 gigaflops/watt power-effi­ci­en­cy from a sin­gle cabi­net of opti­mi­zed 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ pro­ces­sors and AMD Instinct™ MI250x acce­le­ra­tors. Final­ly, Frontier’s mixed-pre­cisi­on com­pu­ting per­for­mance clo­cked in at 6.86 exa­flops, as mea­su­red by the High-Per­for­mance Lin­pack-Acce­le­ra­tor Intro­spec­tion, or HPL-AI, test. Next steps for Fron­tier inclu­de con­ti­nued tes­ting and vali­da­ti­on of the sys­tem, which remains on track for final accep­t­ance and ear­ly sci­ence access later in 2022, and open for full sci­ence at the begin­ning of 2023.

TYAN Brings Modern HPC Server Platforms for Data Centers at ISC 2022

Tai­pei, Tai­wan, May 27, 2022 — TYAN®, an indus­try-lea­ding ser­ver plat­form design manu­fac­tu­rer and a MiTAC Com­pu­ting Tech­no­lo­gy Cor­po­ra­ti­on sub­si­dia­ry, will exhi­bit its latest HPC plat­forms powe­red by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ Pro­ces­sors with AMD 3D V‑Cache™ tech­no­lo­gy for data cen­ters deploy­ments at ISC 2022 event from May 30th to June 1st at booth#D400 in Ham­burg, Germany.

The amount of data gene­ra­ted by humans and machi­nes has incre­a­sed expo­nen­ti­al­ly and this requi­res a steady incre­a­se of data cen­ter com­pu­te per­for­mance, the­re­fo­re, modern data cen­ters need balan­ced hard­ware to effi­ci­ent­ly mana­ge gro­wing data volu­mes”, said Dan­ny Hsu, Vice Pre­si­dent of MiTAC Com­pu­ting Tech­no­lo­gy Corporation’s Ser­ver Infra­st­ruc­tu­re Busi­ness Unit. “TYAN’s ser­ver plat­forms built upon AMD EPYC™ 7003 Seri­es pro­ces­sors pro­vi­de the best foun­da­ti­on for dat­a­cen­ters that can be tailo­red to spe­ci­fic workloads with balan­cing hard­ware design.”

Opti­mi­zing for HPC com­pu­ta­ti­on, data­ba­se per­for­mance, and high data through­put at the edge

Powe­red by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC pro­ces­sors with AMD 3D V‑Cache tech­no­lo­gy, the Trans­port HX TN83-B8251 is a 2U dual-socket ser­ver with 16 DDR4-3200 DIMM slots and eight 3.5‑inch hot-swap SATA or NVMe U.2 tool-less dri­ve bays. The plat­form sup­ports up to four dou­ble-wide GPU cards and two addi­tio­nal low-pro­fi­le PCIe 4.0 x16 slots that pro­vi­de opti­mi­zed topo­lo­gy to impro­ve HPC and deep lear­ning per­for­mance.
