HPE Demonstrates Exascale Components: AMD’s and Intel’s Platforms Uncovered

At the Intercontinental Supercomputer (ISC 2022) trade exhibit, HPE demonstrated blade techniques that will power two exascale supercomputers set to arrive on-line this 12 months — Frontier and Aurora. Regretably, HPE experienced to use subtle and energy-hungry components to get unprecedented computing effectiveness. Consequently, equally equipment use liquid cooling, but even huge h2o blocks can not cover some intriguing style peculiarities the blades element. 

The two Frontier and Aurora supercomputers are crafted by HPE employing its Cray EX architecture. While the devices leveraged AMD and Intel hardware, respectively, they use significant-functionality x86 CPUs to run common duties, and GPU-centered compute accelerators to operate remarkably parallel supercomputing and AI workloads.
