A Question of Timing

July 31, 2005 8:00 pm | by Randy C. Hice | Blogs | Comments

In retrospect, I was probably distracted by some petty work issues when I returned to my apartment that evening in 1978. It was just twilight, and I was in a deep funk, staring at the ground as I walked from my car toward the apartment entrance.

Enabling Synchronicity in HPC Clusters

July 31, 2005 8:00 pm | by Kevin Shinpaugh, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

Streamlining for speed with InfiniBand technology Kevin Shinpaugh, Ph.D. Long accepted as an article of faith within the high-tech industry, Moore's Law (CPU performance doubles every 18 months, while the cost of components halves) brings many blessings, yet it also presents a special set of challenges as far as harnessing increased CPU horsepower to other components of the system. Today, a "nothing-special" desktop computer bought from a discount retailer contains the processing power of a 10-year-old supercomputer

The TOP500 and Computational Science: A not-so-simple matter of software

July 31, 2005 8:00 pm | by Jack Dongarra, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

The TOP500 project was started in 1993 to provide a reliable basis for tracking and detecting trends in high-performance computing. Twice a year, a list of the sites operating the 500 most powerful computer systems is assembled and released. As predicted several years ago, only systems exceeding the one teraflop-per-second mark on the Linpack benchmark were able to enter the list
