In 2019, ICM University of Warsaw expanded its HPC infrastructure with a specialized vector computer, NEC SX Aurora TSUBASA, with eight vector processors. Aurora TSUBASA is used at ICM UW for calculations in physics, chemistry, AI, as well as development work intended to adapt and optimize the existing software to work on the new computer architecture.

Distinctive features of NEC SX-Aurora TSUBASA are:

  • High memory bandwidth (48 GB, HBM2) of the Vector Engine (>1 TB/s) at < 300 W,
  • 64 fully functional vector registers and 192 double precision FP operations per cycle,
  • Works within the GNU/Linux environment – natively or in the accelerator mode.

The Workshop is intended as an introduction to two software frameworks designed specifically for NEC SX-Aurora TSUBASA
