As is tradition, Rich Brueckner of insideHPC visited the Swiss hpc-ch booth at the SC12 conference in Salt Lake City. Rich describes some of the hot topics at SC12, including the emergence of new accelerators from NVIDIA and Intel, and new liquid cooling technologies.
In certain heart diseases, the left ventricle does not contract simultaneously. Usually, a pacemaker can come to the rescue here. Why this does not help in thirty per cent of cases, however, is difficult to ascertain. Simulations on the CSCS Monte Rosa supercomputer of the physiology of the heart should now help provide a detailed […]
Jean Favre (CSCS) presents at SC12 a video created together with Martin Schmitt and Christos E. Frouzakis ETH Zurich of direct numerical simulation of flow in engine-like geometries. Internal combustion engine flows are turbulent, unsteady and exhibit high cycle-to-cycle variations. There are multiple turbulence generating mechanisms and their effects overlap in time and space, creating […]
Dear HPC enthusiasts, Bellatrix is the new EPFL computing cluster managed by DIT. To mark the imminent production start of this new machine, a joint Dell-Intel-EPFL event will take place on Thursday, December 6th High Performance Computing: benefits and critical aspects Power provisioning and energy consumption become major challenges in the field of high performance […]
CSCS has the pleasure to announce the following course which will be held at CSCS in Lugano on December 10-12, 2012: Getting the best out of multi-core Modern multi-core x86 processors have 100 times more peak performance than similar single-core processors from ten years ago, but most applications haven’t been able to leverage this power […]
