Supercomputing & High Density Racks

At ICC we’ve now deployed the ICC AXIS™ R-725a. Testing on the EPYC 7000 series in our lab showed an increase of ~.1GHz in performance per core on these high core count processors with liquid cooling vs. air. While that does not seem like a big number, it yields a massive performance increase across 32, 64, or 128 cores. ICCRead More

The Super-binned 9990XE perfectly illustrates current and future issues with power draw and cooling

The 9990XE made headlines in April of this year for being an Auction-Only part as well as Intel’s fastest most powerful CPU to date. At International Computer Concepts we’ve tested a few of these at their Manufacturer’s settings (5.0GHz, Default voltages) and found that they are nearly impossible to keep stable without a beefier cooler (We normally use a 360mm radiator +Read More
