Hybrid Multicore Consortium kicks-off

US National Laboratories, NASA and others team to accelerate accelerator take-up!

Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory have collectively announced the creation of the Hybrid Multicore Consortium (HMC). The three US R&D units are convinced of the potential of current and emerging accelerator technologies. Hybrid multicore architectures have an ‘unrealized potential’ to delivering high-end production computing capabilities for the most demanding scientific applications. The HMC will address the migration of existing applications to accelerator based systems and will identify obstacles to near term use.

A kick off meeting was held last month with presentations from the three labs, NASA and other members including Georgia Institute of Technology and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH). More from computing.ornl.gov/HMC.
