Advances in Computers: High Performance Computing: 72 by Marvin Zelkowitz

By Marvin Zelkowitz

this can be quantity seventy two of Advances in pcs, a sequence that all started again in 1960 and is the oldest carrying on with sequence chronicling the ever-changing panorama of knowledge expertise. every year 3 volumes are produced, which current nearly 20 chapters that describe the newest know-how within the use of pcs this day. during this quantity seventy two, we current the present prestige within the improvement of a brand new iteration of high-performance pcs.

The laptop this day has develop into ubiquitous with hundreds of thousands of machines being offered (and discarded) every year. robust machines are produced for just a few hundred U.S. funds, and one of many difficulties confronted through proprietors of those machines is that, as a result carrying on with adherence to Moore’s legislation, the place the rate of such machines doubles approximately each 18 months, we normally have good enough desktop energy for our wishes for be aware processing, browsing the internet, or enjoying games. even though, an analogous can't be stated for functions that require huge strong machines. functions similar to climate and weather prediction, fluid movement for designing new airplanes or autos, or nuclear plasma stream require as a lot laptop energy as we will offer, or even that's not sufficient. Today’s machines function on the teraflop point (trillions of floating element operations in line with moment) and this publication describes learn into the petaflop sector (1,015 FLOPS). The six chapters supply an outline of present actions that would offer for the advent of those machines within the years 2011 via 2015.
