Alternative processors tapped to fulfill supercomputing's need for speed

Agam Shah | Nov. 17, 2015
GPUs, FPGAs are drawing interest at this year's Supercomputing 15 conference as it becomes obvious CPUs aren't enough.

Beyond CPUs and coprocessors, other supercomputing technologies are being discussed at the show that could boost overall performance. Supercomputers could get photonics technology, in which light is used to speed up data faster between CPUs, memory and storage. Also being discussed at the conference are new memory technologies like HMC (Hybrid Memory Cube), which allows more memory capacity by stacking modules.
