“AMD is focused on delivering processor innovations to help meet our customers’ business and research computing needs,” said Marty Seyer, AMD vice president, CPG’s server business segment. “With the AMD Athlon MP processor and its superior floating point capability, leading enterprises and research institutes can get the high performance they need to stay in front of their computing requirements.”
AMD Athlon MP processor-based servers can be combined via high-speed interconnect technologies to create powerful clusters that bring commercial customers and research institutes increased computing capabilities. AMD Athlon MP processors provide the powerhouse for high-end workstations running applications that benefit from AMD’s impressive floating-point capabilities. AMD Athlon MP processors are often the processor of choice for high performance computing (HPC) solutions for government and university research, life sciences, geophysics, automotive, aerospace and entertainment industry customers.
The Tokyo Institute of Technology (TITECH) has one of several AMD Athlon MP processor-based supercomputers on the TOP500 Supercomputer list. “We have been able to demonstrate that a single university lab can achieve terascale performance within the restrictions of a typical university lab budget,” said Dr. Satoshi Matsuoka, professor of Global Scientific Information and Computer Center at TITECH. “AMD Athlon MP processors, known for tremendous floating point capability that compute-intense applications require, are an important part of that equation. TITECH uses its AMD Athlon MP processor-based system for building a large grid computing infrastructure, which is in turn used for various high-end applications such as terascale data processing in high-energy physics, advanced bioinformatics, large scale numerical optimizations, etc.”
