Intel HPC Performance Prevails at Supercomputing 2016

Today at Supercomputing 2016, Intel made another splash on the Top500 list of supercomputers with a 2.5x increase in Intelآ® Omni-Path Architecture (Intelآ® OPA) systems and nine additional Intelآ® Xeon Phiآ™-based systems, demonstrating the rapid market adoption of its technologies. Intel announced key updates to its high performance computing (HPC) portfolio including Intelآ® HPC Orchestrator, a modular toolset that improves setup and management of systems, enables testing at scale and simplified deployment. Intelآ® HPC Orchestrator is now generally available through OEM partners Dell and Fujitsu. Lastly, for the first time publically, Intel demonstrated an HPC cluster featuring an early version of next-generation Intelآ® Xeonآ® processor using Intel OPA and Advanced Vector Extensions-512.
