Radio Astronomy demands for HPC power have been rising and are expected to reach exaflop scale by 2020. To address such huge demands for compute, users are testing newer CPU architectures and accelerator architectures such as GPUs and FPGAs. Intel, with the help of HPC Ecosystem partners, has stated a goal to deliver exascale computing capability by 2018. This goal is dependent on solutions based on Intel's multi-core architecture and the Intel® Many Integrated Core (Intel MIC) architecture. In… CONTINUE READING
