Last week we talked about the upcoming release of Intel’s Xeon E5 processor family. This week, we have some even more important announcements regarding Intel MIC and the strategic direction that Intel is headed regarding high performance computing.

Future Trends in HPC, part 2

This is a continuation of our look at future trends in high performance computing. In part 1 we covered the first five of the top ten trends. In this installment we’ll wrap up with the remaining five.

Future Trends in HPC, part 1

As we near the end of 2011, we take a moment to reflect on the past year. It’s been a busy year for IT across virtually all verticals, from mobile and search to enterprise servers and cloud computing. When we attended HPC360 a few weeks ago, we had the pleasure to attend a keynote presentation […]

New GPU Solutions for Grid Computing and other Supercomputing Needs

We’ve just launched two new GPU products, along with our new GPU supercomputing solutions section! GPU computing is the use of a graphics processing unit (GPU) in computing purposes, from general-purpose to supercomputing tasks. With a constantly increasing demand for greater computing performance across the board, supercomputing is more and more drawing upon a hybrid model which integrates the […]

GPU workstation sale (and other news)

Wow, this is the first update in a while on the ICC blog. We have been working on several web-based projects that have been keeping us busy, and I would like to highlight some of them (and other news) in this post. Website and product news First of all, as you may have noticed, our […]

China builds the world’s fastest supercomputer

After almost a year-long run, the Jaguar supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee has relinquished its title as the world’s fastest computer. This honor now belongs to the Tianhe-1A supercomputer located in the National Supercomputing Center in Tianjin, China. Tianhe-1A is expected to officially become the leader of the TOP500.org list of the […]

Probability processing: moving beyond the 0s and 1s

For the past few years, processing technology has been steadily trying to break out of the typical x86 CPU mold that has been the standard since the 1970s. Since GPUs (graphics processing units) have emerged, traditional processing methods have been augmented with the vector computing approach of those units working in conjunction with CPUs. Now, […]

The challenge of programming for multicore processors

Multicore microprocessors, which emerged after CPU manufacturers hit the power wall and could not sufficiently cool the ever-shrinking transistors on single-core processors, hold a lot of promise for the future of computing. But one major obstacle prevents them from revolutionizing CPU speeds: the challenge of programming for parallel and multicore computing. In a fascinating article […]

Platform Computing – innovator in cloud computing software

When Platform Computing began as a company in 1992, computers were used by large organizations much like they had been for several previous decades. If a complex computing job needed to be run, it would be run on one machine, often only during certain times in the day. There was no widespread use of clusters […]
