Intel’s next-generation Xeon Phi, Knights Landing, now shipping to developers

Intel’s next-generation Xeon Phi, Knights Landing, now shipping to developers It’s been almost three years since Intel first detailed its upcoming Xeon Phi hardware, codenamed Knights Landing, and the company is now shipping silicon to developers who can pony up the cash.There are two Knights Landing-based Xeon Phi systems available.

Meet the new world’s fastest supercomputer: China’s TaihuLight

The Sunway TaihuLight is now the fastest system in the world, according to the twice-per-year TOP500 list, with a stunning Linpack benchmark result of 93 petaflops.TaihuLight contains 40,960 ShenWei 26010s, one for each node that also contains 32GB of RAM, adding up to a total of over 10 million cores.

IBM to deliver 200-petaflop supercomputer by early 2018; Cray moves to Intel Xeon Phi

More supercomputer news this week: The US is responding to China’s new Sunway TiahuLight system that was announced Monday, and fast.(We had originally reported in 2014 that both Summit and Sierra would achieve roughly 150 petaflops).

IBM’s new AI-friendly server adopts Nvidia’s NVLink for faster memory

IBM’s new AI-friendly server adopts Nvidia’s NVLink for faster memory So IBM is also using Nvidia’s proprietary NVLink interconnect technology to address that problem.The S822LC is slated to deliver 21 teraflops of half-precision operations; machine learning typically doesn’t need full or double precision for training neural networks, for example.

World’s largest neutrino detector gets a Fujitsu-powered supercomputer upgrade

World’s largest neutrino detector gets a Fujitsu-powered supercomputer upgrade Last month, we discussed how Fujitsu had partnered with ARM to add support for ARM’s new vector processing SIMD to upcoming supercomputer architectures.It’s called Cherenkov radiation.

Nvidia absolutely crushes its quarterly earnings, has its first $2 billion quarter

Nvidia absolutely crushes its quarterly earnings, has its first $2 billion quarter Other sources, like Quadro, grew a modest 9%, but nothing like the leap that gaming GPUs saw.Data center revenue grew by 59% as well, though this was much smaller in absolute terms ($230 million in data center sales, versus over $1 billion in gaming revenue).

China retains its lead with the two fastest supercomputers in the world

China retains its lead with the two fastest supercomputers in the world Today brings a new TOP500 list of the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world.And China still sits on top, with the number one and number two systems: Sunway TaihuLight, at a Linpack rating of 93 petaflops, and Tianhe-2, at 34 petaflops.

Nvidia builds its own supercomputer, claims top efficiency spot in the TOP500

Nvidia builds its own supercomputer, claims top efficiency spot in the TOP500 This year, Nvidia has made its own entry — and no, I don’t mean that Nvidia is powering someone else’s system, or that the company collaborated with a different firm.According to Nvidia, the new machine is 2.

IBM, Nvidia release new PowerAI software suite for deep learning projects

IBM, Nvidia release new PowerAI software suite for deep learning projects At some point this year the big buzzword appears to have shifted away from “the cloud” to “deep learning.In similar fashion, everybody who’s anybody is setting machine learning loose on problems — especially the much-beloved process of deep learning.
