The hottest next generation of high-performance co

  • Detail

The next generation of high-performance computers will make an article on the CPU. It was reported on July 30 that not long ago, Dawning 5000A high-performance computer (HPC) officially settled in Shanghai Supercomputing Center, and dawning and the Computing Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences also started the technology research and development of the next generation HP to successfully complete task C. In an exclusive interview with Yi technology, Li Jun, President of dawning, said that the current architecture using general-purpose CPU has encountered challenges in performance. Justin Jackson, an engineer of the project, pointed out that the next generation of products mainly focus on CPU, and the use of domestic products with independent innovation is an inevitable trend

the fifth generation HPC is a cluster system, and this kind of computing is a component of the strategic alliance machine for industry university research cooperation technology innovation and achievement transformation. A large number of low-cost components have been used, including Intel (blog), AMD and other general-purpose processors and motherboard chips. The Dawning 5000A has built nearly 7000 low-power amd true quad core Haolong processors "Barcelona". Li Jun believes that the current HPC architecture based on general-purpose processors is unlikely to continue to be used, and the core is to work on the CPU

the Computing Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences is also actively developing its own processor chip technology, and this project is Godson. Therefore, the industry is also exploring the possibility that the new generation HP is equipped with Godson for the fatigue life C of the spring. Li Jun did not confirm that Godson will appear on the new generation HPC. He said that the two sides are also exploring the possibility of cooperation, "but it is certainly a necessary trend to use independently developed chips as the processor architecture."

at present, in addition to the continuous role of HPC in traditional energy, meteorology and other fields, such large-scale technologies are also gradually emerging in the simulation field of architecture and industrial design. Li Jun is satisfied with Shuguang's achievements in domestic commercial and civil fields in recent years. He said that he will continue to promote the industrialization process of domestic HPC
