AMD Processors Accelerating Performance of Top Supercomputers Worldwide

Growing preference for EPYC™ processors resulted in the number of AMD-powered supercomputers growing 3.5x year-over-year

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — During this year’s Super­com­pu­ting Con­fe­rence 2021 (SC21), AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) is show­ca­sing its expan­ded pre­sence and gro­wing pre­fe­rence in the high per­for­mance com­pu­ting (HPC) indus­try with the excep­tio­nal inno­va­ti­on and adop­ti­on of AMD data cen­ter pro­ces­sors and acce­le­ra­tors. Cus­to­mers across the indus­try con­ti­nue to expand their use of AMD EPYC™ pro­ces­sors and AMD Instinct™ acce­le­ra­tors to power cut­ting-edge rese­arch nee­ded to address some of the world’s big­gest chal­len­ges in cli­ma­te, life sci­en­ces, medi­ci­ne, and more.

Gro­wing pre­fe­rence for AMD is show­ca­sed in the latest Top500 list. AMD now powers 73 super­com­pu­ters, com­pa­red to 21 in the Novem­ber 2020 list, a more than 3x year-over-year incre­a­se. Addi­tio­nal­ly, AMD powers four out of the top ten most power­ful super­com­pu­ters in the world, as well as the most power­ful super­com­pu­ter in EMEA. Final­ly, AMD EPYC 7003 seri­es pro­ces­sors, which laun­ched eight mon­ths ago, are uti­li­zed by 17 of the 75 AMD powe­red super­com­pu­ters in the list, demons­tra­ting the rapid adop­ti­on of the latest genera­ti­on of EPYC processors.

The deman­ds of super­com­pu­ting users have incre­a­sed expo­nen­ti­al­ly as the world seeks to acce­le­ra­te rese­arch, redu­cing the time to dis­co­very of valu­able infor­ma­ti­on,” said For­rest Nor­rod, seni­or vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger, Data Cen­ter and Embed­ded Solu­ti­ons Busi­ness Group, AMD. “With AMD EPYC CPUs and Instinct acce­le­ra­tors, we con­ti­nue to evol­ve our pro­duct offe­ring to push the bounda­ries of data cen­ter tech­no­lo­gies enab­ling fas­ter rese­arch, bet­ter out­co­mes and more impact on the world.”

AMD has also been reco­gni­zed in the annu­al HPC­wire Rea­ders’ and Edi­tors’ Choice Awards at SC21. The com­pa­ny won ten awards inclu­ding Best Sus­taina­bi­li­ty Inno­va­ti­on in HPC, Best HPC Ser­ver Pro­duct and the Out­stan­ding Lea­ders­hip in HPC award pre­sen­ted to Pre­si­dent and CEO Dr. Lisa Su.
