A new 1.5-million-dollar high-performance computing (HPC) facility funded by Marquette and the National Science Foundation is expected to become available to the Marquette research community early next year.
A presentation on the new facility will be held on Thursday, Oct. 31, at noon in Raynor Memorial Libraries, Beaumier Suite BC.
The new system will:
- Deliver a 120+-fold increase in overall performance compared to the current system, the Père cluster.
- Feature general compute nodes with 128 CPU cores each (AMD Rome CPUs, about 50 nodes).
- Feature compute nodes with two additional GPUs installed (Nvidia V100, 12 nodes).
- Feature specialized machine learning/artificial intelligence nodes equipped with eight GPUs (3 nodes).
The Marquette research community is encouraged to share feedback before placing the final order with the vendor.
