7 of the top 10 Supercomputers “vote”… AMD!

H AMD may be known to the general consumer public for its Ryzen processors and Radeon GPUs, but the well-known company plays dynamically and in other categories. In particular, AMD has developed specially designed processorswhich are used inside a row supercomputers. In fact, in the relevant list that was made public recently and concerns Top 500 supercomputerss that currently exist in the world, AMD has managed to win it “vote of confidence” of 121 systems. In fact, the most important thing is that AMD’s Silicon chip is inside 7 systems, which are located in the Top-10 with the fastest supercomputers.

It is worth noting that the supercomputer: Frontier powered by AMD components, it’s the only one on the planet that plays at its scale exascale and this why the Aurora (which is the rival awe) which has inside its processors Intelhas yet to present one benchmark. The Fronrier on the other hand, is fully functional and is used by the scientific community in a series of investigations, for which enormous computing power is cheated. And the interesting thing is the speed and performance of the Frontier still is improvingas it started with 1.02 exaflops performance and has already surpassed the 1.194 exaflops, an amount that translates into a 17% increase. It is worth noting that the total representation of Intel in the list of the top 500 Supercomputers that currently exist in the world is greater, as it counts 360 systems. Still, AMD really made huge leaps, if only considering that in the relevant list for 2016, they were only mentioned 13 supercomputers.
