Intel's "Ivy Bridge" 22nm refreshes of the Xeon E5-2600 and E5-1600 series CPUs have launched. We're excited by the increased performance, higher core counts, greater memory bandwidth, and excellent value for the dollar of these new Xeon E5-2600v2 and E5-1600v2 series products.
Higher core counts and increased clock speeds
Memory bandwidth increases for all SKUs
Excellent value for your compute dollar
The new Xeon E5-2600v2 CPUs support much of the same motherboard and platform infrastructure as their predecessors. The new CPUs are socket compatible with a BIOS upgrade, and many platforms are ready for DDR3-1866 memory speeds as well.
We have been featuring a GPU Performance Optimization Series on our HPC Tech Tips blog. These posts are intended for non-experts who are new to GPU programming or have a GPU application that doesn't achieve the best performance. Although the discussion is technical at times, the focus remains upon improvements that can be made without significant efforts. The goal is for readers to make the intelligent design choices which result in great performance (if not peak performance).
We'll be meeting on Tuesday October 22nd to discuss the SC13 Student Cluster Competition. Presentation topics include:
