CSCS will install by the end of June, 2011 a new Cray XMT. James Maltby of Cray presents the new supercomputer and its new possible applications for science and industry. James explains how easy it is program this supercomputer supporting massive hyperthreading. Have a look!
The HPC Advisory Council, a leading organization for high-performance computing research, outreach and education, announced that it will honor seven of its members including Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) for their contribution and support during the 2010-2011 time frame. Brian Sparks tell us more about the prize received by CSCS. Have a look: Read the […]
Whether data is processed or deleted in computers, both consume energy. The energy is released as heat. A study has now shown that the heat forming can be avoided, and, in an extreme case, cold can be created – a glimmer of hope for supercomputer centres. The deletion of data, under certain conditions, can create […]
Global supercomputing leader Cray Inc. (Nasdaq: CRAY) today announced the launch of the Company’s new production hybrid supercomputing system – the Cray XK6 supercomputer – at the 2011 Cray User Group (CUG) meeting in Fairbanks, Alaska. The highly anticipated new supercomputer will combine Cray’s Gemini interconnect, AMD Opteron™ 6200 Series processors (code-named “Interlagos”) and NVIDIA […]
CSCS is pleased to announce the following two courses that will take place in Manno during June. Fast Parallel I/O on HPC systems – 9-10 June 2011 Improved scalability of parallel computational kernels in modern HPC applications frequently exposes the time taken to access data storage devices as the major continuing bottleneck to further scalability […]
