In this paper, we describe our approach to utilizing the compute power of the Cell Broadband Engine&#8482; (Cell/B.E.)<sup>1</sup> processor as an accelerator for computationally intensive portions of high performance computing applications. We call this approach "hybrid programming" because it distributes application execution across heterogeneous(More)

Aside from its performance, Roadrunner has two distinguishing characteristics: a very good power/ performance ratio and a " hybrid " computer architecture that mixes several types of processors. By November 2008, the traditionally architected Jaguar computer at Oak Ridge National(More)
