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.

Still waiting for Exascale: Japan’s Fugaku outperforms all competition once again

FRANKFURT, Ger­ma­ny; BERKELEY, Calif.; and KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— The 58th annu­al edi­ti­on of the TOP500 saw litt­le chan­ge in the Top10. The Micro­soft Azu­re sys­tem cal­led Voya­ger-EUS2 was the only machi­ne to shake up the top spots, clai­ming No. 10. Based on an AMD EPYC pro­ces­sor with 48 cores and 2.45GHz working tog­e­ther with an NVIDIA A100 GPU and 80 GB of memo­ry, Voya­ger-EUS2 also uti­li­zes a Mel­lanox HDR Infi­ni­band for data transfer. 

While the­re were no other chan­ges to the posi­ti­ons of the sys­tems in the Top10, Perl­mut­ter at NERSC impro­ved its per­for­mance to 70.9 Pflop/s. Housed at the Law­rence Ber­ke­ley Natio­nal Labo­ra­to­ry, Perlmutter’s incre­a­sed per­for­mance couldn’t move it from its pre­vious­ly held No. 5 spot. 

Fug­aku con­ti­nues to hold the No. 1 posi­ti­on that it first ear­ned in June 2020. Its HPL bench­mark score is 442 Pflop/s, which excee­ded the per­for­mance of Sum­mit at No. 2 by 3x. Instal­led at the Riken Cen­ter for Com­pu­ta­tio­nal Sci­ence (R‑CCS) in Kobe, Japan, it was co-deve­lo­ped by Riken and Fuji­tsu and is based on Fujitsu’s cus­tom ARM A64FX pro­ces­sor. Fug­aku also uses Fujitsu’s Tofu D inter­con­nect to trans­fer data bet­ween nodes. 

In sin­gle or fur­ther-redu­ced pre­cisi­on, which are often used in machi­ne lear­ning and A.I. app­li­ca­ti­on, Fug­aku has a peak per­for­mance abo­ve 1,000 PFlop/s (1 Exaflop/s). As a result, Fug­aku is often intro­du­ced as the first “Exas­ca­le” super­com­pu­ter. (…) Wei­ter­le­sen »

TOP500 Expands Exaflops Capacity Amidst Low Turnover

FRANKFURT, Ger­ma­ny; BERKELEY, Calif.; and KNOXVILLE, Tenn.—The 56th edi­ti­on of the TOP500 saw the Japa­ne­se Fug­aku super­com­pu­ter soli­di­fy its num­ber one sta­tus in a list that reflects a flat­tening per­for­mance growth cur­ve.  Alt­hough two new sys­tems mana­ged to make it into the top 10, the full list recor­ded the smal­lest num­ber of new ent­ries sin­ce the pro­ject began in 1993.

The ent­ry level to the list moved up to 1.32 peta­flops on the High Per­for­mance Lin­pack (HPL) bench­mark, a small incre­a­se from 1.23 peta­flops recor­ded in the June 2020 ran­kings. In a simi­lar vein, the aggre­ga­te per­for­mance of all 500 sys­tems grew from 2.22 exa­flops in June to just 2.43 exa­flops on the latest list. Like­wi­se, average con­cur­ren­cy per sys­tem bare­ly incre­a­sed at all, gro­wing from 145,363 cores six mon­ths ago to 145,465 cores in the cur­rent list. (…) Wei­ter­le­sen »

AMDs “Rome” zeigt sich erstmals in TOP500-Liste der Supercomputer

Mit der Abschal­tung des Super­com­pu­ters Titan im August fiel das noch im Juni auf Platz 12 lie­gen­de und damit höchst­plat­zier­te AMD-Sys­tem aus der Anfang die­ser Woche erschie­ne­nen neu­en TOP500-Lis­te her­aus, nach­dem die­se dort zuletzt sowie­so nur noch spär­lich ver­tre­ten waren. Aller­dings zei­gen sich mitt­ler­wei­le ers­te Sys­te­me mit den Epyc-Pro­zes­so­ren der zwei­ten Genera­ti­on mit dem Code­na­men “Rome”, die erst im August vor­ge­stellt wor­den waren.

China Extends Lead in Number of TOP500 Supercomputers, US Holds on to Performance Advantage

BERKELEY, Calif.; FRANKFURT, Ger­ma­ny; and KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— The 54th edi­ti­on of the TOP500 saw Chi­na and the US main­tai­ning their domi­nan­ce of the list, albeit in dif­fe­rent cate­go­ries. Mean­while, the aggre­ga­te per­for­mance of the 500 sys­tems, based on the High Per­for­mance Lin­pack (HPL) bench­mark, con­ti­nues to rise and now sits at 1.65 exa­flops.

AMD erzielt mit FirePro-Installation in Darmstadt Achtungserfolg in Green500-Liste der energieeffizientesten Supercomputer

Die Clus­ter-Instal­la­ti­on L‑CSC am GSI Helm­holtz­zen­trum für Schwer­io­nen­for­schung GmbH in der Nähe von Darm­stadt wur­de mit einem Ergeb­nis von 5,27 GFLOPS/W als ener­gie­ef­fi­zi­en­tes­ter Höchst­leis­tungs­rech­ner aus­ge­zeich­net und hält damit den ers­ten Platz in der Green500-Lis­te der welt­weit ener­gie­ef­fi­zi­en­tes­ten HPC-Sys­te­me. Im Ver­gleich zum Spit­zen­rei­ter der Juni-Aus­ga­be TSUBAME-KFC mit NVIDIA Kep­ler K20 GPUs als Beschleu­ni­ger (jetzt Drit­ter) liegt die Effi­zi­enz 20 % höher. Für AMD ist dies zugleich ein Ach­tungs­er­folg, denn der L‑CSC-Clus­ter am GSI setzt als einer von nur drei Super­com­pu­tern aus der aktu­el­len TOP500-Lis­te, (…) Wei­ter­le­sen »
