Building on this week’s supercomputing wins with Los Alamos National Laboratory and Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, AMD and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced next-generation AMD EPYC™ CPUs and AMD™ Instinct GPUs will power a new “pre-exascale” supercomputer through the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) initiative. With up to 550 petaFLOPs of computational power, LUMI will help researchers across Europe advance R&D and drive innovation.
The new supercomputer will be one of the world’s fastest supercomputers, hosted in CSC – IT Center for Science in Kajaani, Finland, and will be shared by ten European countries as part of the newly formed LUMI consortium.
With next-generation AMD EPYC CPUs and AMD Instinct GPUs, LUMI is expected to deliver unparalleled performance to target deep learning capabilities to advance the combination of modeling, simulation, and AI workloads to solve complex research. The new system is expected to be available in mid-2021.
