AMD 7nm EPYC “Rome” CPUs in Upcoming Finnish Supercomputer, 200,000 Cores Total
Throughout the next year and a 1/2, the Finnish IT Heart for Science (CSC) will seemingly be buying a brand original supercomputer in two phases. The principle segment consists of Atos’ air-cooled BullSequana X400 cluster which makes use of Intel’s Cascade Lake Xeon processors alongside with Mellanox HDR InfiniBand for a theoretical performance of 2 petaflops. Within the meantime, machine memory per node will fluctuate from ninety six GB up to 1.5 TB with the entire machine receiving a four.9 PB Lustre parallel file machine as neatly from DDN. Furthermore, a separate partition of segment one will seemingly be frail for AI study and might per chance characteristic 320 NVIDIA V100 NVLinked GPUs configured in four-GPU nodes. It is anticipated that high performance will reach 2.5 petaflops. Half one will seemingly be brought online at some level within the summer of 2019.
The build things obtain attention-grabbing is in segment two, which is made up our minds for completion all the way thru the spring of 2020. Atos’ will seemingly be building CSC a liquid-cooled HDR-linked BullSequana XH2000 supercomputer that will seemingly be configured with 200,000 AMD EPYC “Rome” CPU cores which for the mathematicians accessible works out to three,a hundred twenty five 64 core AMD EPYC processors. Of direction, all that x86 muscle will require a fantastic deal of machine memory, as such, every node will seemingly be equipped with 256 GB for staunch measure. Storage will encompass an 8 PB Lustre parallel file machine that’s to be offered by DDN. Total segment two will extend computing capability by 6.four petaflops (high). With deals treasure this already being signed it might perchance appear AMD’s subsequent-technology EPYC processors are shaping up nicely appealing about Intel had this market cornered for virtually a decade.
