American Government Asked Hardware Giants to Help

Both AMD and Intel have landed multi million dollar contracts from the American Department of Energy in order to crank up research into high performance computing. It seems that the US government was calling for help from all the sides.

AMD made a statement a week ago, saying that it will undertake development of HPC technologies to move towards the future of exascale computing. As a result, AMD will be given a cheque for $12.6 million to continue research into the area of processor and memory technologies.

A few days later, Intel has also announced that it will bag a contract from the Department of Energy to conduct exascale computing research. Within the frames of the government’s Fast Forward program, Intel’s Federal subsidiary was handed $19 million to conduct research as well. The hardware giant admits that the company will be pushing towards exascale computing by the end of this decade, and the research will go into its Xeon chips.

In the meantime, industry experts doubt that the two companies will be sharing any notes within the program. This is understandable, taking into account their competing positions in the market. However, they both will be joining up with a number of academics and industry figures in frames of the joint public-private project.

It is expected that advances in HPC should boost the country’s infrastructure. Moreover, it should create benefits for business, accessing computation power many times higher than today, while requiring similar power consumption. By the way, a number of HPC facilities in the United Kingdom that are aimed at business use have been unveiled recently.
