NEC Deutschland GmbH: Vector Computing in the Year 2020
TimeWednesday, June 24th6:54pm - 7:10pm
DescriptionVector Computers have dominated the high end HPC market from the 1980's. By the end of the century, most supercomputers used scalar processors, and clusters became more and more popular, mainly due to their comparably low cost. Yet, vector processors have significant advantages on a large number of applications, therefore NEC continue to develop and produce modern vector processors.
This talk gives an overview of modern day vector computing, from single-node acceleration to large-scale vector supercomputing.
