AMD EPYC Rome processors which would be the first to make the most of the model new 7nm course of node are tapping in additional offers from supercomputing corporations even earlier than its launch. The most recent stories come from Finland the place Atos introduced their new BullSeqyuana X line of supercomputers with one using as many as 200,000 AMD EPYC Rome cores for HPC functions.

Based on the main points, Atos could have two supercomputers made with numerous functions. Their first part would contain an Intel Cascade Lake CPU, and NVIDIA Tesla GPU powered setup often known as the BullSequana X400 and that’s anticipated to be accomplished by 2019. In 2020, the corporate will end engaged on their AMD EPYC Rome powered BullSequana XH2000 with whole processing out-put of 11 Petaflops.

Atos is happy to bolster the partnership with AMD with the deliberate launch of an EPYC Rome blade for our new BullSequana X2410 subsequent 12 months,” stated Agnès Boudot, Vice President HPC & Quantum at Atos. “The HPC market was ready for a brand new compute engine, providing larger reminiscence bandwidth to extend software efficiency effectivity. The EPYC household will vastly complement our answer’s portfolio.”
The brand new supercomputer would home a complete of 3125 AMD EPYC Rome processors. These can be organized within the new BullSequana X2410 Blade which consists of three compute nodes the place every node is supplied with two AMD EPYC Rome processors and 16 DIMM slots for DDR4 reminiscence. This in whole would give 200,000 cores and 400,000 threads on the supercomputer contemplating the brand new AMD EPYC Rome processors function as much as 64 cores and 128 threads.
AMD welcomes the announcement by Atos of their upcoming BullSequana X supercomputing system with AMD EPYC processors,” stated Scott Aylor, company vp and basic supervisor, AMD datacenter merchandise. “As a worldwide chief in excessive efficiency computing, Atos is completely suited to ship on the promise of the EPYC product line and the business’s first 7nm datacenter CPU coming to market from AMD subsequent 12 months.”
This is able to lead to a complete of 6.four Petaflops of computing efficiency which is 5 occasions larger than their present supercomputer. The system will likely be aiming for bandwidth and compute-intensive HPC duties which make sense for the excessive quantity of reminiscence and cores accessible on the supercomputer. The supercomputer is predicted to value $44.2 million to develop and can be completed by 2020. Along with this, AMD has additionally tapped in a cope with the US Division of Power for the event of their Perimutter supercomputer which will likely be housing AMD’s next-gen Zen Three primarily based Milan CPUs together with NVIDIA’s next-gen Tesla GPUs, extra particulars on that right here.
