Last month AMD announced its EPYC Milan processors based on their revolutionary Zen 3 architecture and showed their incredible price to performance ratio as well as the security features they offer. So, it’s natural to see them getting used by more companies, OEMs and even organizations.
So, these new AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors will be used to power a new supercomputer for the National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore. The supercomputer will help to power national high-performance computing (HPC) resource center dedicated to supporting science and engineering computing needs.
The system will be based on the HPE Cray EX supercomputer and will use a combination of the EPYC 7763 and EPYC 75F3 processors. It is expected to be fully operational by 2022 and is expected to have a peak theoretical performance of 10 petaFLOPS, 8x faster than NSCC’s existing pool of HPC resources. Researchers will use the system to advance scientific research across biomedicine, genomics, diseases, climate, and more.
“AMD EPYC processors are the leading choice for the HPC research that makes an impact on the world, and that’s why they have been chosen to power Singapore’s most powerful supercomputer,” said Ram Peddibhotla, corporate vice president, AMD EPYC product management. “We’re excited to work with HPE and the National Supercomputing Centre Singapore to help unlock scientific discoveries across medicine, diseases, climate, engineering and more.”
