5th Aurora Forum
Next Generation Vector Supercomputer
5th Aurora Forum
NEC again open up the doors to a new Aurora Forum meeting to inform interested developers and users about the SX-Aurora TSUBASA at the SC HPC Conference in Denver, CO USA.
The NEC SX-Aurora TSUBASA is the newest in the line of NEC SX Vector Processors with the worlds highest memory bandwidth. The Processor that is implemented in a PCI-e formfactor can be configured
in many flexible configurations together with a standard x86 cluster. No special framework is needed to build the applications, but standard programming paradigms in C/C++ and Fortran, for which the NEC compiler will automatically carry out vectorization and parallelization.
The target is a higher sustained performance with minimum effort by utilizing the Vector Engine hardware.
November 18, 2019 (Monday) 13:00 ~ 15:00.
