AMD Leadership in High Performance Computing (HPC)
AMD has been recognized as a leader in high performance computing (HPC), receiving two awards from HPCwire: a Readers’ Choice Award for ‘Best HPC Collaboration between Government and Industry’ and an Editors’ Choice Award for ‘Top Five Vendors to Watch.’ These awards further underscore AMD’s leadership position in supercomputing with its AMD Opteron™ processor family and its recent addition of the high performance AMD Opteron™ 6300 Series processor.
AMD provides massive compute capability, performance and flexibility to power the world’s number one ranked supercomputer. This ranking, the sixth number-one spot for AMD-based supercomputers in the last five years, highlights AMD’s commitment to enabling indispensable computing technology by offering competitive performance at low cost.
AMD technology is used in many of the world’s leading supercomputers, including the new Oak Ridge National Labs “Titan” supercomputer, the top ranked supercomputer in the world according to the recently released Top500 Supercomputer Sites list. AMD was also recently awarded $12.6 million by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) as a part of the Extreme-Scale Computing Research and Development Program.
HPC Graphics Card
AMD’s new FirePro™ S10000, the industry’s most powerful server graphics card, designed for high-performance computing (HPC) workloads and graphics intensive applications is helping to provide the efficient computing performance needed to run the number two system on the Green500 list.
