Turning Up The Volume To 11

Supercomputing Gets Even Cooler

by Amelia Dalton

In this week's Fish Fry, I have a couple of super-cool supercomputing super-stories for you. I look into the Blue Waters Project that aims to solve the world's most complex problems through petascale computing. I also interview Stefan Mohl (Mitrionics - CTO) about how Mitrionics has reorganized this year, how they are shifting the focus of their supercomputing FPGAs to the HPC market, and how Mitrion-C is facilitating that new focus.

I have a super awesome new nerdy giveaway to throw your way this week, but you'll have to tune in to find out what it is and how you can win.

In this week's Fish Fry, I dive into the deep waters of supercomputing. I interview Mitrionics CTO Stefan Mohl about how Mitrionics' supercomputing FPGAs are finding a new home in the HPC market and I check out how The Blue Waters Project is looking to solve the world's most complex problems one petaflop at a time. Does this episode rank as one of the year's best Fish Frys? Let me know!

Open Power Foundation Aims to Make PowerPC More Plentiful

by Jim Turley

Once upon a time, there were many little RISC processors frolicking in the deep green microprocessor forest. There was the jaunty little ARM. The bright little SPARC. The mighty little MIPS. The aristocratic little PowerPC. And so many others. They all played and laughed and had ever such a good time.

Then, one by one, the happy little RISC processors started disappearing. Were they gobbled up by the big, bad CISC processor that lurked in the woods? Did they cross over the Wheatstone Bridge and into another land? Or did they just get lost in the tall grass, wandering aimlessly until their mommies and daddies forgot about them? ...
