Frontier: The world’s fastest supercomputer with AMD hardware

High-Performance System (HPC) provides “super machines” that run large servers and serve other specific applications that require higher processing speeds and larger memory capacity.

The OMGWorking in this area, Frontier this week highlighted an organization at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Tennessee, the world’s fastest supercomputer.

AMD’s claim is based on the most recent versions of the Top500 and Green500 rankings, ranking machines in the segment. Frontier 1.1 got exoflaps and took first place Supercomputer Break the exoscale barrier.

Frontier’s performance is more than twice that of system number 2 and more than the sum of the next seven systems in the Top500 list. Tools with good energy efficiency were also appreciated.

Tests also showed it Frontier offers a power output of 62.68 gigaflops / watt From the single chassis of 3rd General AMD EPYC processors and accelerators compatible with AMD Instinct MI250x GPU.

The machine is the world’s fastest artificial intelligence system, with 6.86 exoflobs on the HPL-AI scale, equivalent to executing 68 million mechanisms per second in the brain’s 86 billion neurons.

‘Monster’ specifications

Oh The system is water-cooled and uses over 22,000 liters To keep the components at the correct operating temperature. Ability Storage 700 petabytes Maximum data transfer speed 75 TB / s.

Currently, 5 out of the top 10 computers in the ranking use AMD’s EPYC processors, leading Frontier. However, Intel plans to surpass it with the Aurora, which promises up to 2 exoflobs and is expected to be operational by the end of the year or in 2023.
