World셲 First Exascale Supercomputer Powered by AMD EPYC꽓 Processors and AMD Instinct꽓 Accelerators

Fron짯tier super짯com짯pu짯ter, powered by AMD EPYC CPUs and AMD Instinct Acce짯le짯ra짯tors, achie짯ves num짯ber one spots on Top500, Green500 and HPL-AI per짯for짯mance lists, an indus짯try first 

AMD powers five of the top ten most powerful and eight of the top ten most effi짯ci짯ent super짯com짯pu짯ters in the world 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) show짯ca짯sed its con짯tin짯ued lea짯der짯ship in high per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting (HPC) by powe짯ring the fas짯test and the most ener짯gy effi짯ci짯ent super짯com짯pu짯ters in the world, accor짯ding to the latest Top500 and Green500 lists.

Oak Ridge Natio짯nal Laboratory셲 (ORNL) Fron짯tier sys짯tem sub짯mit짯ted its very first score to the Top500 list of 1.1 exa짯flops, making it the world셲 fas짯test super짯com짯pu짯ter and the first to break the exas짯ca짯le bar짯ri짯er. Frontier셲 per짯for짯mance is more than dou짯ble the num짯ber two sys짯tem and grea짯ter than the sum of the next seven sys짯tems on the latest Top500 list.

In addi짯ti짯on, the Fron짯tier test and deve짯lo짯p짯ment sys짯tem (TDS) secu짯red the top spot on the Green500 list, deli짯ve짯ring 62.68 gigaflops/watt power-effi짯ci짯en짯cy from a sin짯gle cabi짯net of opti짯mi짯zed 3rd Gen AMD EPYC꽓 pro짯ces짯sors and AMD Instinct꽓 MI250x acce짯le짯ra짯tors. Final짯ly, Frontier셲 mixed-pre짯cis짯i짯on com짯pu짯ting per짯for짯mance clo짯cked in at 6.86 exa짯flops, as mea짯su짯red by the High-Per짯for짯mance Lin짯pack-Acce짯le짯ra짯tor Intro짯s짯pec짯tion, or HPL-AI, test. Next steps for Fron짯tier include con짯tin짯ued test짯ing and vali짯da짯ti짯on of the sys짯tem, which remains on track for final accep짯tance and ear짯ly sci짯ence access later in 2022, and open for full sci짯ence at the begin짯ning of 2023.

AMD Processors Accelerating Performance of Top Supercomputers Worldwide

Growing preference for EPYC꽓 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 year셲 Super짯com짯pu짯ting Con짯fe짯rence 2021 (SC21), AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) is show짯ca짯sing its expan짯ded pre짯sence and gro짯wing pre짯fe짯rence in the high per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting (HPC) indus짯try with the excep짯tio짯nal inno짯va짯ti짯on and adop짯ti짯on of AMD data cen짯ter pro짯ces짯sors and acce짯le짯ra짯tors. Cus짯to짯mers across the indus짯try con짯ti짯nue to expand their use of AMD EPYC꽓 pro짯ces짯sors and AMD Instinct꽓 acce짯le짯ra짯tors to power cut짯ting-edge rese짯arch nee짯ded to address some of the world셲 big짯gest chal짯lenges in cli짯ma짯te, life sci짯en짯ces, medi짯ci짯ne, and more.

Gro짯wing pre짯fe짯rence for AMD is show짯ca짯sed in the latest Top500 list. AMD now powers 73 super짯com짯pu짯ters, com짯pared to 21 in the Novem짯ber 2020 list, a more than 3x year-over-year increase. Addi짯tio짯nal짯ly, AMD powers four out of the top ten most powerful super짯com짯pu짯ters in the world, as well as the most powerful super짯com짯pu짯ter in EMEA. Final짯ly, AMD EPYC 7003 series pro짯ces짯sors, which laun짯ched eight months ago, are uti짯li짯zed by 17 of the 75 AMD powered super짯com짯pu짯ters in the list, demons짯t짯ra짯ting the rapid adop짯ti짯on of the latest gene짯ra짯ti짯on of EPYC processors.

The demands of super짯com짯pu짯ting users have increased expo짯nen짯ti짯al짯ly as the world seeks to acce짯le짯ra짯te rese짯arch, redu짯cing the time to dis짯co짯very of valuable infor짯ma짯ti짯on, said For짯rest Nor짯rod, seni짯or vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Data Cen짯ter and Embedded Solu짯ti짯ons Busi짯ness Group, AMD. 쏻ith AMD EPYC CPUs and Instinct acce짯le짯ra짯tors, we con짯ti짯nue to evol짯ve our pro짯duct offe짯ring to push the boun짯da짯ries of data cen짯ter tech짯no짯lo짯gies enab짯ling fas짯ter rese짯arch, bet짯ter out짯co짯mes and more impact on the world.

AMD has also been reco짯gni짯zed in the annu짯al HPC짯wire Rea짯ders and Edi짯tors Choice Awards at SC21. The com짯pa짯ny won ten awards inclu짯ding Best Sus짯taina짯bi짯li짯ty Inno짯va짯ti짯on in HPC, Best HPC Ser짯ver Pro짯duct and the Out짯stan짯ding Lea짯der짯ship in HPC award pre짯sen짯ted to Pre짯si짯dent and CEO Dr. Lisa Su.

Still waiting for Exascale: Japan셲 Fugaku outperforms all competition once again

FRANKFURT, Ger짯ma짯ny; BERKELEY, Calif.; and KNOXVILLE, Tenn. The 58th annu짯al edi짯ti짯on of the TOP500 saw litt짯le chan짯ge in the Top10. The Micro짯soft Azu짯re sys짯tem cal짯led Voy짯a짯ger-EUS2 was the only machi짯ne to shake up the top spots, clai짯ming No. 10. Based on an AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sor with 48 cores and 2.45GHz working tog짯e짯ther with an NVIDIA A100 GPU and 80 GB of memo짯ry, Voy짯a짯ger-EUS2 also uti짯li짯zes a Mel짯lan짯ox HDR Infi짯ni짯band for data transfer. 

While the짯re were no other chan짯ges to the posi짯ti짯ons of the sys짯tems in the Top10, Perl짯mut짯ter at NERSC impro짯ved its per짯for짯mance to 70.9 Pflop/s. Housed at the Law짯rence Ber짯ke짯ley Natio짯nal Labo짯ra짯to짯ry, Perlmutter셲 increased per짯for짯mance couldn셳 move it from its pre짯vious짯ly held No. 5 spot. 

Fug짯a짯ku con짯ti짯nues to hold the No. 1 posi짯ti짯on that it first ear짯ned in June 2020. Its HPL bench짯mark score is 442 Pflop/s, which excee짯ded the per짯for짯mance of Sum짯mit at No. 2 by 3x. Instal짯led at the Riken Cen짯ter for Com짯pu짯ta짯tio짯nal Sci짯ence (RCCS) in Kobe, Japan, it was co-deve짯lo짯ped by Riken and Fuji짯tsu and is based on Fujitsu셲 cus짯tom ARM A64FX pro짯ces짯sor. Fug짯a짯ku also uses Fujitsu셲 Tofu D inter짯con짯nect to trans짯fer data bet짯ween nodes. 

In sin짯gle or fur짯ther-redu짯ced pre짯cis짯i짯on, which are often used in machi짯ne lear짯ning and A.I. appli짯ca짯ti짯on, Fug짯a짯ku has a peak per짯for짯mance abo짯ve 1,000 PFlop/s (1 Exaflop/s). As a result, Fug짯a짯ku is often intro짯du짯ced as the first 쏣xas짯ca짯le super짯com짯pu짯ter. () Wei짯ter짯le짯sen 쨩

TOP500 Expands Exaflops Capacity Amidst Low Turnover

The ent짯ry level to the list moved up to 1.32 peta짯flops on the High Per짯for짯mance Lin짯pack (HPL) bench짯mark, a small increase from 1.23 peta짯flops recor짯ded in the June 2020 ran짯kings. In a simi짯lar vein, the aggre짯ga짯te per짯for짯mance of all 500 sys짯tems grew from 2.22 exa짯flops in June to just 2.43 exa짯flops on the latest list.
