Presented by Steven J Wallach, Convey Computer Corp.
HPC research is focused on achieving ExaFlop/ExaOP performance by 2020. Unlike reaching a PetaFlop, the general consensus is that vastly new programming paradigms, hardware architectures, and interconnects will be needed (as well as new power plants). This presentation will be focused on increasing uni-processor performance and the roles played by application specific heterogeneous computing and compilers in evolving processor architecture.
