Cybersecurity Outlook 2023 (Dec. 13th)

HPCwire, the leading publication for news and information for the high performance computing industry, announced the winners of the 2022 HPCwire Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards at the Supercomputing Conference (SC22)

Tom Tabor, CEO of Tabor Communications, unveiled the list of 137 winners across 21 categories just before the opening gala reception.

'The HPCwire Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards serve as a pillar of recognition in our community, acknowledging major achievements, outstanding leadership, and innovative breakthroughs,' said Tom Tabor, CEO of Tabor Communications, publisher of HPCwire. 'There is undeniable community support signified in receiving this award.

This special SC22 edition looks at the new TOP500 list of the world's most powerful supercomputers, released today.

It marks the 60th edition of the list, repesenting 30 years of systematic data on the highest performing computer architecture and configurations. While this TOP500 is not full of surprises, there's a new no. 1 at the top of the GREEN500, and across all the categories of the list there's always important historical data and valuable tea leaves pointing to future trends.

This is an update release for the OHPC 2.x branch targeting support for RHEL8 variants and OpenSUSE Leap 15. This update release provides a number of component updates along with builds against a new gcc compiler variant (gnu12).

Note that users who previously enabled the OHPC 2.x repository via the ohpc-release package will have access to the updates available in 2.6 and no additional repository enablement should be necessary. Please see the Release Notes and documentation for more detailed information.

The top 10 of the semiannual TOP500 list of supercomputers for November 2022 has just one new entrant, Leonardo, which jumped in at #4.

Frontier, which became the first exascale supercomputer in June and ranked number one among the fastest in the world, retained that title in the new TOP500 semiannual list of the world's fastest.

Without any increase in its speed-1.102EFLOP/s-Frontier still managed to score 2.5 times faster that the number two finisher, Fugaku, which also came in second in the June rankings. An exascale computer is one that can perform 1018 (one quintillion) floating point operations per second (1 exaFLOP/s).

Despite doubling its maximum speed since it was ranked number three in June, the Lumi supercomputer remained in third-place.

The TOP500 list ranks the world's most powerful supercomputers by their performance on the LINPACK Benchmark, while the Green500 list ranks the top 500 most powerful supercomputers in the world by measuring their energy efficiency features

The TOP500 and the Green500 lists are compiled twice a year in June and November. The lastest rankings have been released earlier this week at the SC22 conference in Dallas, United States.

LUMI: One of The Greenest Supercomputers In The World

The EuroHPC pre-exascale supercomputer LUMI, located in Finland and hosted by CSC - IT Center for Science, is not only the most powerful supercomputer in Europe but also one of the greenest in the world, reaching 7th place on the new Green500 list.
