has announced that overall customer-reported scores for the Cray
X1 supercomputer system were the best for any high-performance computing (HPC) system on the new HPC Challenge benchmark tests co-sponsored by the DARPA HPCS (High Productivity Computing Systems) program, the U.
A real-life adventure, it begins with Seymour Cray
and his intellectual counterparts beating out IBM to become the runaway industry leaders of the supercomputer industry.
On Monday, in filing an anti-dumping petition with the Commerce Department and the International Trade Commission, Cray
argued that NEC had underpriced its machines by as much as $65 million.
We expect that Xframe and 10 Gigabit Ethernet will continue playing an important role in our ongoing work with Sandia and other Cray
lost money last year, but customers placed orders in record amounts after it introduced new machines.
In this case, it really paid off by allowing us to achieve our performance goals and save time and money," said Dave Kiefer, senior vice president of Hardware Engineering at Cray
AMD's collaboration with Cray
is not just about high performance computing, we believe the innovation sparked by this relationship, especially through our joint work on the DARPA HPCS proposal, could help define the future of the IT industry.
Rottsolk said he is pleased that three of the systems have already passed acceptance tests and users are beginning to do real work on the new Cray
engineers provided detailed knowledge of the CPU architecture, original technology process characteristics and previous implementations, while Cadence engineers contributed deep expertise in device/cell layout migration in 90-nanometer geometries using automation.
We are pleased to have completed the sale of these Cray
SX-6 supercomputers to the University of Toronto," said Jim Rottsolk, Cray
chairman and chief executive officer.
supercomputer products that masterfully leverage the AMD Opteron(TM) processor and HyperTransport(TM) technology, the Cray
XT3(TM) and Cray
XD1(TM) systems, have posted leading overall results on the HPC Challenge benchmark tests, AMD (NYSE:AMD) and Cray
) reported today.
said its average listed system included 509 processors and had a theoretical speed of 315.
