AMD partners with Arm developer for exascale computing
AMD has announced plans to work with French chip designer SiPearl to build exascale-level supercomputing systems that use SiPearl’s Arm-based Rhea processor with AMD’s Instinct GPU accelerators.
SiPearl is a relatively small startup that began operation in 2019 with a license for Arm’s Neoverse high-performance technology. It has forged a number of alliances with partners including Intel, Nvidia, HPE, and Graphcore.
SiPearl is also involved with the European Processor Initiative (EPI), a consortium selected by the European Union to support the development of a European microprocessor specifically for high performance computing (HPC), as well as emerging applications such as artificial intelligence. The EPI’s goal is to develop an Arm-based processor for an exascale supercomputer by 2023.
