Univerzitet u Štutgartu i Hewlett-Packard Enterprise najavljuju izgradnju dva nova superkompjutera

Stuttgart University and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) have announced a partnership to construct two state-of-the-art supercomputers at the university’s High-Performance Computing Center. These supercomputers, named Hunter and Herder, will be powered by the latest AMD Instinct MI300A accelerator processing units (APU).

Hunter, set to begin operations in 2025, is expected to deliver a maximum performance of 39 petaflops. This supercomputer will be based on the HPE Cray X4000 architecture and will utilize AMD Instinct MI300A accelerators. Hunter will serve as a transitional supercomputer, allowing HLRS users to transition to the massively parallel, GPU-accelerated structure of Herder.

Herder, projected to be installed in 2027, will represent an exascale system capable of achieving speeds up to one quintillion FLOPS. The final configuration of Herder will be defined by the end of 2025 and will be built upon accelerator chips.

Through this collaboration, AMD aims to enhance performance, efficiency, and data transfer speed by providing the latest AMD Instinct MI300A accelerators for the “Hunter” project. Both supercomputers will provide researchers in Stuttgart with numerous new possibilities for exploration in various areas of engineering and applied sciences. Expectations center around advanced vehicle design with improved fuel consumption, the development of more productive wind turbines, and the creation of new materials for electronics and other applications.
