AMD Opteron processors are in more of the 20 highest-performing supercomputers on the TOP500 Supercomputer Sites list than any other processor
HAMBURG, Germany, June 23 -- At the International Supercomputing Conference, AMD today announced that AMD Opteron processors continue to power many of the highest-performing supercomputers in the world, including the top two overall. AMD Opteron processor highlights from the latest TOP500 Supercomputer Sites list include:
The semi-annual Top500 Supercomputer Sites list determines its rankings based on the LINPACK benchmark. Recently, Advanced Clustering Technologies published LINPACK scores based on the Six-Core AMD Opteron processor which demonstrate a remarkable cost-per-GFLOP of $35.21.[i]
Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD) is an innovative technology company dedicated to collaborating with customers and technology partners to ignite the next generation of computing and graphics solutions at work, home and play. For more information, visit http://www.amd.com.
[i] Based on peak performance of 99.38 GFLOPS divided by node cost of $3,500 as reported on http://www.advancedclustering.com/company-blog/high-performance-linpack-on-xeon-5500-v-opteron-2400.html as of June 16, 2009. Configuration: Six-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 2435 (2.6GHz), Supermicro H8DMT-IBX, 16GB DDR2-800, 250GB SATA II @ 7200 RPM w/16MB cache.
