New developments in HPC and Chip Design, and various projects from
the 2023 Student Cluster Competition


There are new hardware processes and programming paradigms that promise
to dramatically improve process yields and performance. CXL will unlock
academic research computing disciplines that currently have no solution
path. These include deeply recursive codes and
applications that require large memory blocks.

Unified Acceleration (UXL), was announced last month at the Linux
Foundation Open Source Summit with the goal of delivering a
multi-architecture and multi-vendor software ecosystem for all
accelerators based on open source standards. And Universal Chiplet
Interconnect Express (UCIe) is helping to build an open ecosystem of
chiplets for on-package


Shankar Viswanathan is the lead performance architect for AMD's
Strategic Silicon products. He has worked on the design and verification
of several generations of AMD processors. Most recently, he was on the
design team for the SoCs that power game consoles such as the
PlayStation5 and the Steam Deck. His general interests like at the
intersection of performance and security in hardware platforms.
