The TOP500 list of the most powerful supercomputers in the world has a spinoff, dubbed the Green500, that ranks the most energy-efficient systems in terms of megaflops per watt. AMD, has done rather well this year on the energy efficiency charts; its newly launched S10000 GPU powers the second most efficient supercomputer on the planet. That system, dubbed SANAM, is a Saudi Arabian build-out located in the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology. It's capable of 2.35 GFLOPS/watt and built on Intel's Xeon E5-2650 eight-core processors. There's a total of 38,400 cores in the system, alongside... Read more...
