A cool write up about our first exascale supercomputers that are starting to come online right now. Very impressive. #HPC nextplatform.com/2021/10/04/fir…

I've heard of using lower precision for AI/ML but the fact they are having success doing it in applications like CFD surprises me. Interesting stuff #hpc #programming nextplatform.com/2021/08/23/mor…


I had to learn Fortran in college. I've used it a few times in my career. Like COBOL it is still being used on new projects and is even being updated. A year ago this website was founded to encourage community growth and collaboration. #programmer #HPC
used a lot in certain math/engineering. we run monte carlo calcs in fortran


These new POWER10 chips are total beasts! I wish the PowerPC desktop/laptop lines had more longevity than they did, but alas... #HPC #hardware nextplatform.com/2020/08/18/ibm…

‘Twas never to be. I wonder if they’ll recover the cost of engineering these chips?


12.8 *Tbps* switch?!?! That's a lot of bandwidth...along with a ton of other neat features. #hpc

Christoph S reshared this.

@Christoph S so that one switch has enough bandwidth to handle DE-CIX Frankfurt's traffic. Astounding!
Yep, it's really incredible. Their new all time high was in February with over 8 Tbps. And having a single switch handling this is even more crazy


The A64FX ARM chip for #HPC applications is pretty astounding...
#HPC
Dang. Would you like some CPU with your cores?


Using spare CPU cycles to give back through "volunteer computing" distributed computing system BOINC #hpc #science #space


Another interesting article on replacing modern IEEE floating point with newer approaches that get rid of some of the nasty artifacts we constantly deal with while simultaneously reducing memory/storage requirements #programming #hpc

Brad Koehn ☑️ reshared this.

It is interesting that he is still touting as a positive benefit what I have seen other people pointing out as a distinct failing, the merging of +/-0 and +/- infinity.


On a lark I wanted to see if SETI@Home still existed...forget it's a whole ecosystem Berkley puts out called BOINC. Now I have clients for 6 projects running. Giving back a little bit. #science #hpc https://boinc.berkeley.edu/


Interesting juxtoposition in my newsfeed. #hpc #exascale #computers Image/Photo
