[anandtech]AMD Scores First Top 10 Zen Supercomputer… at NVIDIA

Quote:
One of the key metrics we’ve been waiting for since AMD launched its Zen architecture was when it would re-enter the top 10 supercomputer list. The previous best AMD system, built on Opteron CPUs, was Titan, which held the #1 spot in 2012 but slowly dropped out of the top 10 by June 2019. Now, in June 2020, AMD scores a big win for its Zen 2 microarchitecture by getting to #7. But there’s a twist in this tale.

It wasn’t until late 2019 that systems based on AMD EPYC show up. In November’s list that we saw two AMD Naples and two AMD Rome systems push AMD’s total up to six (5 based on EPYC, one on older Opterons). For the June 2020 announcement this week, another seven AMD Rome systems are in the list, making Rome the 10th most popular processor family for supercomputers. But it’s Selene at #7 that’s making the headlines.

Selene is the name of the new supercomputer sitting at #7. For host processors, it is using AMD’s Rome 7742 parts, which are the highest performing commercial parts available that aren’t for specialized markets – technically a list price of $6950 each. What makes Selene a bit odd for an AMD win is that it is part of a supercomputer built with NVIDIA A100 accelerators. And it’s also built for NVIDIA to use at NVIDIA.

The wins for AMD on Zen are now (with Rmax):

#7, Selene, an EPYC 7742 + A100 system for NVIDIA (27.6 PF)
#30, Belenos, an EPYC 7742 system for Meteo France (7.7 PF)
#34, Joliot-Curie Rome, an EPYC 7H12 system for CEA in France (7.0 PF)
#48, Mahti, an EPYC 7H12 system for CSC in Finland (5.4 PF)
#56, Betzy, an EPYC 7742 system for Sigam2 AS in Norway (4.44 PF)
#58, PreE, a Hygon C86 system for Sugon, China (4.32 PF)
#124, Freeman, an EPYC 7542 system for ERDC DSRC (2.5 PF)
#172, Betty, an EPYC 7542 system for the US Army Research Laboratory (2.1 PF)
#268, Cara, an EPYC 7601 system for German Aerospace Center (1.75 PF)
#292, an EPYC 7501 + Vega 20system for Pukou Advanced Computing Center, China (1.66 PF)
#483, Spartan, an EPYC 7H12 system for Atos, France (1.26 PF)

there is the irony of nvidia but AMD progressing in the server market - with a few feathers in their cap(?) -

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
If you need help:
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

I thought we heard AMD already was building the fastest supercomputer a while ago? What happened to that?

Intel seems to be in deep p00p on all markets, losing ground in portables, mainstream desktops and now in servers.
Even Apple is moving away from Intel

If nothing else, it shows that Nvidia isn't stupid when it comes to buying the best processors on the market. The Spectre and Meltdown hotfixes, according to one of my IT Security instructors last semester, cut performance in half. No one is going to bother with Intel when that kind of performance hit occurs in any environment.

It'd be more irony if Nvidia used AMD GPUs in some manner to leverage higher processing power, but them using AMD CPUs is fine. Nvidia doesn't make processors, they make GPUs. Kind-of a big difference there.

They do actually, they are just rather bad at it.

And that was probably for the best, though. nVidia's competition would have been what? Intel? Lol.

Indeed, I am glad they didn't merge. Of course Lisa would probably have had a position under LJM but then the mega company might have been broken up for being a monopoly, thus it was in theirs, as well as our, best interest they are competing with each other. Though, considering the culture here neither would be left for wanting if either company goes bankrupt.
