The Setonix supercomputer from the Pawsey SuperComputing firm is all established to contain AMD’s up coming-gen Intuition MI200 GPUs and EPYC Milan CPUs. The technical specs for Setonix supercomputer had been confirmed by CTO, Ugo Varetto, in the course of ISC 2021.
Setnoix Supercomputer To Be Powered by AMD’s Future-Gen Intuition MI200 128 GB GPUs & EPYC Milan CPUs
The specs of AMD’s Instinct MI200 HPC GPU accelerator ended up uncovered last week. It seems to be like the Setnoix supercomputer is now all set to be one of the initial items to characteristic the CDNA 2 GPUs with MCM technological know-how. The Setnoix supercomputer will be showcasing over two hundred,000 EPYC Milan cores and far more than 750 of the brand name new AMD MI-Next GPUs (Intuition MI200) based on the CDNA two architecture.
The AMD Intuition MI200 GPUs showcasing the CDNA two architecture are codenamed Aldebaran and will be the 1st GPUs to feature an MCM layout. You can locate far more particulars on that below. The GPU will aspect 128 GB of HBM2e memory across an 8192-little bit bus interface. Given that there are at least 750 GPUs showcased in the Setnoix GPU, there’s a overall of 96 Terabytes of graphics memory obtainable on the program.
In conditions of CPUs, the procedure will feature at minimum 200,000 EPYC Milan cores, and looking at that these will most probably be sixty four core areas, we can assume the overall quantity of CPUs to be 3125. Other technical specs consist of 548+ TB of technique memory, In the vicinity of-node NVMe storage, fifteen PB of ClusterStor Lustre filesystem with 2.7 PB SSDs, ninety PB Ceph Storage (60 PB with 8+3 erasure coding) & a totally program configurable HPC environment centered close to the HPE Cray Sashta system. When all is set jointly, the Setnoix supercomputer will provide up to 50 PetaFlops of horsepower & will cost all over 70 Million pounds.
“We recently gained 70 million bucks in funding to make investments in replacing our computing, community and storage infrastructure,” Varetto stated. “With the recently obtained funding, we acquired a brand new HPE Cray supercomputer named soon after a modest marsupial endemic to regions shut to Perth” – the laptop is named Setonix – “[and] in a individual procurement, we obtained sixty petabytes of object storage which will be quickly be integrated with the HPE supercomputer in the long run.”
The AMD driven Setnoix supercomputer will be employed to explore new galaxies and also aid acquire improved diagnostic checks for COVID-19. Presently, the Pawsey Center in Australia is dependent on its Magnus and Galaxy programs which put together have a complete processing electrical power of just 1.eighty three PetaFlops.
