Supercomputing under a new lens: A Sandia-developed benchmark re-ranks top computers

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A Sandia National Laboratories software program now installed as an additional test for the widely observed TOP500 supercomputer challenge has become increasingly prominent. The program’s full name — High Performance Conjugate Gradients, or HPCG — doesn’t come trippingly to the tongue, but word is seeping out that this relatively new benchmarking program […]

Supercomputer benchmark gains adherents

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A software program that ranks supercomputers on their ability to solve complex problems rather than on raw speed alone continues to gain traction in the high-performance computing community. More than 60 supercomputers were ranked by the emerging tool, termed the High Performance Conjugate Gradients (HPCG) benchmark, in ratings released at the annual […]

Improved ranking test for supercomputers to be released by Sandia

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sandia National Laboratories researcher Mike Heroux has helped craft a new benchmark that more accurately measures the power of modern supercomputers for scientific and engineering applications. Heroux collaborated with the creator of the widely used LINPACK benchmark, Jack Dongarra, and his colleagues at the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The […]
