SiPearl and AMD collaborate to deal with exascale supercomputing in Europe


Maisons-Laffitte (France), November 14, 2022 – SiPearl, the corporate designing the high-performance, low-power microprocessor for European supercomputers, has entered right into a enterprise collaboration settlement with AMD to supply a joint providing for exascale supercomputing techniques, combining SiPearl’s HPC microprocessor, Rhea, with AMD Intuition™ accelerators.

Initially, AMD and SiPearl will collectively assess the interoperability of the AMD ROCm™ open software program with the SiPearl Rhea microprocessor and construct an optimized software program resolution that will strengthen the capabilities of a SiPearl microprocessor mixed with an AMD InstinctTM accelerator. This joint work targets porting and optimization actions of the AMD HIP backend, openMP compilers and libraries, will allow scientific purposes to learn from each applied sciences.

It’s then envisaged that the collaboration will broaden to incorporate third get together European analysis establishments, supporting analysis modelling instruments. This may allow key European builders and code house owners to port and optimize their purposes on the SiPearl/AMD resolution. In parallel, the businesses will interact with OEMs adopting SiPearl Rhea microprocessor collectively with AMD Intuition accelerators of their designs.

This partnership will dramatically enlarge the selection of acceleration options supplied with SiPearl HPC microprocessors. With this collaboration, SiPearl continues its aim of providing the most effective mixture to deal with the applying wants of the European exascale supercomputing end-users in strategic fields akin to teachers, synthetic intelligence, well being, local weather, power, engineering, geology or authorities.

“Excessive Efficiency Computing is on the coronary heart of AMD; our AMD Intuition™ accelerators energy the primary supercomputer to go the exaflop barrier and we proceed to help quite a few HPC installations all over the world with our merchandise,” stated Brad McCredie, company vp, Information Heart and Accelerated Processing at AMD. “Because the world continues to want extra compute efficiency to drive the subsequent discoveries that can change our society, AMD is delighted to interact one step additional within the European Ecosystem with SiPearl to collectively supply a transparent path to fulfill exascale supercomputing calls for in Europe.”

“Because the European chief in HPC, we’re enthusiastic about this collaboration between SiPearl and AMD. It’s going to contribute significantly to the deployment of the HPC ecosystem in Europe, serving to our clients to deploy AI and Exascale techniques,” stated Emmanuel le Roux, International SVP, Head of HPC AI & Quantum, Atos.”

“We welcome this collaboration with AMD that drive innovation within the HPC market for a few years. This new collaboration with a worldwide chief will additional enrich our joint providing of our HPC microprocessor mixed with accomplice acceleration options. Offering a broader alternative for European supercomputers end-users, it can allow Europe to deal with the nice challenges of our time akin to synthetic intelligence, local weather modelling and medical analysis”, stated Philippe Notton, SiPearl’s CEO and founder.

About SiPearl
