Hands on work on AMD technologies for HPC solutions

The goal of this talk is to present in a practical way how latest AMD technology works and meets current high performance computing requirements. Concepts such as the performance metrics of GFLOPs and GB/s, performance efficiencies of FPU and memory controllers/channels, scalability of the multi socket platforms, tuning tips such as process/thread affinity, multi Infiniband/GPU and their I/O affinity, impact of appropriate math libraries and compilers, power consumption characteristics on a system when heavily stressed with different HPC workloads will be reviewed. By the end of the talk/session you should walk away with some good foundation on what building block technologies matter for you and how to design and exploit your own HPC solutions.
