|AMD Delivers Massive Compute Performance for World's Top Ranked Supercomputer|
Nov 12, 2012 (Marketwire via COMTEX) -- AMD (
"AMD's impressive results in the latest edition of this prominent list underscore our strong focus on creating industry-leading technologies that allow our customers to capture and analyze massive amounts of data for areas of science that will ultimately shape our future," said Suresh Gopalakrishnan, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Server Business Unit. "Through employment of our technology, partners like ORNL allow AMD the opportunity to play a role in how some of the biggest challenges of our time are addressed."
The semi-annual Top500 Supercomputing Sites list coincides with this week's SC12 event in Salt Lake City where AMD's leadership in supporting its technology partners and developing its ecosystem is echoed in the more than 20 technology demonstrations. Visitors to the AMD booth (#2019) will have the opportunity to see AMD-based systems that integrate technologies from nearly 30 independent software and hardware partners, as well as key industry partners such as Appro, Colfax, Cray, Dell, HP, Penguin, and Supermicro. Systems employing AMD FirePro™ graphics, AMD A-Series accelerated processing units (APUs) and AMD SeaMicro technologies will also be featured. The array of technologies presented in the booth emphasizes AMD's capabilities in addressing a range of workloads such as HPC cloud, big data and virtualization.
The Top500 ranking also comes on the heels of the launch of the AMD Opteron™ 6300 Series processor, which is also featured in AMD's SC12 booth. This latest addition to the AMD Opteron family delivers superior performance and scalability for HPC systems. AMD has enhanced the performance of the AMD Opteron 6300 Series for HPC customers by leveraging optimizations in compilers and libraries and combining them with the next-generation core architecture.
