SiCortex Application Workshop

The Mathematics and Computer Science Division (MCS) at Argonne and SiCortex will be hosting a 2-day workshop on June 17th and 18th to introduce the HPC community to the SiCortex system.

Serial #1 of the 5.8 TFlop/s SiCortex SC5832 system was deployed at Argonne last year. With 5832 MIPS64 cores (6 per node), each of which draws only 600 milliwatts of power, this is a rather unconventional computer, but arguably one that presages the future of high-performance computing architecture.
