Campus Resources for High Performance Computing
HPC@Mines features three main families of architectures. The first most commonly used platform is the x86 platform, this is much akin to the processors in your ordinary desktop in that the newest nodes are essentially Intel i7s, these types of nodes make up most of Mio(1,284+ cores) and all of AuN(2,304 cores). The second most prevalent architecture is the IBM built PowerPC platform found in the Blue GeneQ Mc2(8,192 cores). The third family of architectures are the Hardware Accelerators. We have two types, the Intel Mic/Phi cards(1,920 cores) and the Nvidia GPU based cards(2,304 cores), both of these live in Mio.
