Marking a new era in high-performance computing, Intel Corporation introduced the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor, a culmination of years of the research and collaboration, to bring unprecedented performance for innovative breakthroughs in manufacturing, life sciences, energy and other areas.

The ability to quickly compute, simulate and make more informed decisions has propelled the growth of high performance computing (HPC) and analytics. This has been driven by global business and research priorities to more accurately predict weather patterns, create more efficient energy resources, and develop cures for diseases among many other pressing issues. With the breakthrough performance per watt and other new attributes of Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor, the industry will have even greater reliability in generating accurate answers, help proliferate high-performance computing beyond laboratories and universities and achieve maximum productivity.

225W passively cooled? They must have hidden requirements like your blade airflow needs to be the equal of a small turbine commonly found on private aircraft.


That being said, good job Intel. Lets make this shtuff work.

Nothing new really, even the older gen Tesla GPU's were passive only, since you create the airflow with the chassis fans. They are loud but no one cares when it comes to server hardware.

However the fans can consume huge amounts of power (the ones in my DL380 are 1.60A @ 12V each, and there are 12 of them, so that's around 230W maximum :laugh:)

The ones I got from an HP server pull are 3.3-3.9A each :twitch: I doubt air flow is a problem in those chassis.

This might be the begining of a Price war for DP acceleration.

Intel will have the lowest price DP accelerator now.

AMD & Nvidia watch out.

Yes 120mm and these are the weaker 3.3A models I haven't done a video of the 3.9A Delta's that I am using as of now. Downside to the Delta's is they don't spin with 5V which means they are noisy since they are running 7V.

Now that's bad ass :D:D

I have one 120mm Delta but it's only 3A @ 12V, however it can run at 5V with great airflow but it's a bit too noisy for my daily PC.

EDIT: are you using those daily?

Off-topic FTW

We need to start using more hot water loops and then using the heat to generate steam to power the system. Self powered cooling!!!!

I am using the noisier Delta's right now gotta keep them temps down H70 is holding load temps to ~40C load @4ghz 1.6v. I pulled the Nidec's to go on my big watercooler they are wired for 7V right now. CFM/SP matches an Ultra Kaze at full tilt noise is slightly better.

You got some good ears to be able to take the noise for such a long time ;)

Now I'm tempted to put my Delta back in :pimp:

Your numbers are out - as per usual it would seem. GK110 is closer to 93% DGEMM thanks to reduced ECC and dispatch overhead as well as Hyper-Q.

Intel and Nvidia are marketing %

Numbers arent wrong by the way if you look at K20 its 80%+.

Fermi was tested by ORNL / Univ. Tennessee / Univ. Manchester it came up short of the 60-65% marketed @ 56%

AMD Tahiti on the other hand has been tested at 90%. Maybe I should have put an (*) next to AMD only one thats been tested outside of marketing.

K20

Bullshit :laugh:. Verifiable numbers or STFU.
Since you can't produce any K20 numbers I'll presume you'll carry on pulling numbers out of thin air to continue your trollathon.

Even the bogus numbers don't make sense. K20 and K20X are the same GPU - the difference is 1 SMX, one memory controller and 26MHz core. By your retarded reasoning, S10000 should have an efficiency lower than existing Tahiti. And of course you're too lazy even to look for actual values- Xeon Phi's theoretical FP64 is 1.01TFlop/s for the 5110P and actual measured rating is 829 GFlops/s for the top part (see Intels own product sheet footnotes 2 and 4). BTW, Intel's "numbers"are also based on pre-production 61 core parts- non of which exist as a shipping product.

If you're gonna troll at least spend more than 30 seconds looking for the right numbers. And here's a hint, Titan's Linpack run is in March 2013.

You want to talk about bullshit marketing. Here's AMD's press release for Titan:
The DOE's ORNL supercomputer contains 18,688 nodes, each holding a 16-core AMD Opteron 6274 processor, for a total of almost 300,000 cores at 20 petaFLOPS. "Titan" is 10 times more powerful than ORNL's last world-leading system, "Jaguar,"
Actual Opteron 6274 double precision: 70.4 GFlops/s
70.4 x 18688 = 1.3156 petaflops

Xeon Phi and Tahiti are more efficient than Fermi (M2090)? I'd pretty much hope so.
That should be a given based on the fact that AMD's own marketing compares Tahiti with GF110

Nice. Cherry picking a list from the archives. You could try June 2012 (pretty much a solid wall of IBM Blue Gene), or rather wait until tomorrow when the list for November comes out. Blue Gene seems to top out at 2100 MFlops/W...

Titan used the new Tesla K20x accelerators to achieve an energy efficiency of 2,142.77 megaflops per watt (million calculations per second per watt), enough to also rank Titan No. 1 on the Green500 list of the world's most energy-efficient supercomputers.
