AMD and Arm Form the Backbone of EU's 400 Petaflops "EuroExa" Supercomputer

Exascale with AMD Epyc, ARM Cortex, and Xilinx's FPGAs for 2022/2023 deployment

www.tomshardware.com, Sept. 08, 2021 – 

The European Union, via a €20 million grant through its "EU Horizon 2020" initiative, is looking to deploy a 400 petaflops supercomputer on European soil between 2022 and 2023. The supercomputer is being developed under the EuroExa project umbrella, which aims to rebalance the world's scales when it comes to the availability of supercomputing performance.

The supercomputer is expected to scale up to a maximum theoretical throughput of 400 petaflops while consuming up to 30MW of power, deploying technology from AMD, ARM, and a number of other providers in what amounts to a heterogeneous supercomputer. It's projected that the supercomputer will occupy an area equivalent to 30 shipping containers, about 40 meters from one edge of the system to the other.

The EU is in a relatively uncompetitive state when it comes to both silicon manufacturing and investment in high performance computing systems. As of June 2021 and according to the TOP 500 organization, the entire EU counted only 92 total operating supercomputers – the EU lost 11 of those, down from 103, when Brexit occurred. That's compared to 122 supercomputers deployed by the United States, which also has five of the systems in the top 10 supercomputers in the world, and 188 supercomputers for China (two of those in the Top 10).
