IBM, Intel, AMD, Cray, HPE and NVIDIA Have Been Awarded a Grant for Exaflop Supercomputer Development

The most effective supercomputer is launched in China today. The system, called Sunway TaihuLight, operates locally developed processors. The ultimate Sunway TaihuLight productivity is 125 petaflops. In 2020 China plans to generate the first system in the world with a capacity overcoming one exaflops. At present the USA stays behind, however American supercomputers’ energy performance is significantly higher.



The US Department of Energy has established a $258 million grant for cost effective exaflop supermachines construction. Six American companies (IBM, Intel, AMD, Cray, HPE and NVIDIA) won it. Now they are to create an architecture, able to consume 25–30 MW at one exaflop productiveness. Such a system’s deployment is to take place in 2021. Apart from funds committed, each member company of the Exascale Computing Project program will put up its own means, constituting around 40% of DOE’s funds. Thus, the project cost will increase to $430 mln. In return, developers …

Greeting Hi-Fi H81MDC Motherboard from Biostar

Biostar is proud to release a multifunctional micro-ATX motherboard that belongs to the new-gen Puro Hi-Fi lineup. Codenamed Hi-Fi H81MDC, it features 244x230 mm dimensions and is characterized by black-and-red PCB design. The board is based on Intel H81 Express chipset, supporting LGA1150-compatible CPUs of Haswell generation (Pentium, Core i3/i5/i7 series) with the maximal TDP of 95W.



Biostar Hi-Fi H81MDC is primarily peculiar by the realization of a high-end audio subsystem. It is based on a 7.1-channel Realtek ALC892 controller. This subsystem embraces high-quality components, as well as an additional shielding, called Hi-Fi Ground) of the multi-layer PCB. Support of Hi-Fi Power technology provides for an independent power supply to each analog and digital audio channel. The plate is protected against electrostatic discharge on connection of headphones/a microphone.


To proceed with audio subsystem, it comes with an onboard amplifier for headphones; it ensures the …
