Intel is investing to offer a balanced portfolio of products for high-performance computing, including our leading Intel Xeon Phi
processors and low-latency Intel Omni-Path Architecture, said Barry Davis, General Manager, Accelerated Workload Group, Intel.
In Q1 2016, Intel is scheduled to introduce Knights Landing, its next-generation Xeon Phi
with up to 72 cores and three teraflops of performance, and Nvidia's Pascal GPU will cram 17 billion transistors into a single device using a 16 nm FinFET process from TSMC.
The 180 new bullx B515 compute nodes will each include two Intel Xeon Phi
coprocessors delivering an additional 400 Teraflops, taking the total power of the Helios system to almost 2 Petaflops.
Chips in the Xeon Phi
range, also called "Knights Corner," work with server CPUs to speed up scientific, math and graphics tasks.
As a bootable x86 CPU, the Intel Xeon Phi
processor scales efficiently without being constrained by a dependency on the PCIe bus like GPU accelerators.
GA80-B7081: 1U dual-socket Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4-based platform with support for up to 3 Intel Xeon Phi
The large cluster, which will be put into operation in 2015, will be among the 50 largest supercomputers in the world, and will become the largest Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) Xeon Phi
coprocessor-based cluster in Europe.
The objectives of the code are to achieve scalability to very large numbers of compute nodes, larger than what is currently possible; and heterogeneous CPU-Intel Xeon Phi
The Cray XC40 supercomputers incorporate the Aries high performance network interconnect for low latency and scalable global bandwidth, as well as the latest Intel Xeon processors, Intel Xeon Phi
processors, and NVIDIA Tesla GPU accelerators.
This Supercomputer consist of Intel Haswell Xeon E5-2680v3 processors, NVIDIA K40 GPU accelerators and Intel Xeon Phi
5120D coprocessors and whopping storage of 2.
Intel's workstation will be based on an upcoming Xeon Phi
chip code-named Knights Landing, which is being touted as the company's most powerful chip to date.
Aurora will be based on Intel's scalable system framework combining multiple Intel HPC building blocks, including future generations of Intel Xeon Phi
processors and the Intel Omni-Path Fabric high-speed interconnect technology, a new non-volatile memory architecture and advanced file system storage using Intel Lustre software.
