Dean's List: ISC'13

By Dean Klein - 2013-06-19

Reporting to you (almost) live from this year’s International Supercomputing. Here are some highlights to date:

  • On this system Audi is demonstrating advanced 3D design. Note the label on the side of the rack!

  • The Bull X DLC blade featuring Micron DIMMs and C300 SSDs.

  • The Student Cluster Challenge: 3000W power budget HPC. Here's the Purdue team, complete with pizza!

And one final thought for now – I have been impressed by the number of companies selling liquid cooling solutions for HPC. (Hope your connection doesn't leak.)

This is one way to keep the machine running. Or you could increase the efficiency of your computer with an advanced memory technology like Hybrid Memory Cube. More on that later...
