DescriptionThe rise of artificial intelligence in HPC, associated to the data deluge, combined to the transition from monolithic applications toward complex workflows lead the HPC community, especially the hardware architects to reconsider how the Exascale supercomputers are designed. Furthermore, the advent of hybrid computing, defined as the combination of in-house with cloud computing significantly impacts design metrics.
In this presentation, the transition from existing homogenous to Exascale class modular architectures is discussed. The consequences on the compute components including the general purpose processor and the associated accelerators is addressed. All those considerations lead to the guidelines having ruled the design of the European microprocessor that will empower the European Exascale supercomputers.
