Call for Papers: The 13th Workshop on High-Performance, Power-Aware Computing in conjunction with IPDPS 2017 - Deadline: January 29, 2017

Power and energy are now recognized as first-order constraints in high-performance computing.  Optimizing performance under power and energy bounds requires coordination across not only the software stack (compilers, operating and runtime systems, job schedulers) but also coordination with cooling systems and outwards to electrical suppliers.  As we continue to move towards...

Riken’s Shoubu Supercomputer Captures Top Spot on Green500 List

Japan’s research institution RIKEN once again captured the top spot on the Green500 list with its Shoubu supercomputer, the most energy-efficient system in the world. With rating of 6673.84 MFLOPS/Watt, Shoubu edged out another RIKEN system, Satsuki, the number 2 system that delivered 6195.22 MFLOPS/Watt. Both are “ZettaScaler”supercomputers, employing Intel Xeon processors and PEZY-SCnp...

How Lawrence Livermore Is Facing Exascale Power Demands

When considering the challenges of exascale computing, power is right at the top of the list and the major leadership-class centers want to make sure they’re doing everything they can to manage the demands of power today – which can run as high as 10 MW at peak for the largest machines – and in the coming exascale era, when the number could be three times that high. At loads of this...

UC Berkeley’s Experiments Show Magnetic Chips Could Dramatically Increase Computing's Energy Efficiency

University of California, Berkeley researchers demonstrated for the first time that magnetic chips can operate at the lowest fundamental energy dissipation theoretically possible under the laws of thermodynamics. The researchers say their findings prove dramatic reductions in power consumption are possible, and could shrink as low as one-millionth the amount of energy per operation used by...
