The last update of the 500 supercomputers, the most powerful in the world, has seen get in the chair the japanese with the powerful ARM system Fugaku, highlighting at the same time the excellent results of a AMD that, thanks to the processors EPYC, square 4 solutions in the first 50 places at the base with the architecture of the CPU, the Zen 2 to 7nm.
Among the findings worthy of note certainly stands out the finish of seventh place in the 500 of the supercomputer Selene, capable of a computing power in HPL (Higk Performance Linkpak) of 27,58 PetaFLOPS. This is an important achievement, reached thanks to the technology NVIDIA is present in the project with the GPU AMPS A100.
In more detail, Selene using 280 CPU AMD EPYC “Rome”, 7242, solutions announced at the end of 2018 , which offer 64 cores/128 threads, memory DDR4 8-channel support, PCI-E 4.0. The cluster of processors AMD EPYC is flanked to the well – 1.100 NVIDIA GPU Ampere A100, for a total of 277.760 computational cores in total.
After Selene, in the thirtieth position 7.7 PetaFLOPS find Belenos (Atos), followed by Joliot-Curie Rome (34° with 7 PetaFLOPS) and Mahti (48°, with 5.4 PetaFLOPS); all three systems are based on rack BullSequana XH2000 with CPU EPYC ROME 64 Cores.
Finally, remember that AMD is working with HPE on the project , El Capitan, a supercomputer based on processors EPYC Genoa and Radeon Instinct that, once finished, will be the most powerful in the world with a capacity of calculation of well 2 ExaFLOPS.
