Atos expands BullSequana X supercomputer range to include AMD processors
November 12, 2018
Atos today announces support for AMD EPYC™ processors in its upcoming BullSequana X range of supercomputers. The next generation AMD EPYC processor, codenamed “Rome”, is expected to be available in Atos’ new BullSequana XH2000 liquid cooled supercomputer announced today at SC’18, with availability in 2019.
The new BullSequana X2410 blade will offer customers a powerful solution for bandwidth oriented HPC applications, and therefore a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). This new BullSequana blade will improve production workflow performance due to superior memory bandwidth. Each BullSequana X2410 blade will include three compute nodes side-by-side, each equipped with two next generation AMD EPYC™ processors and 16 memory DIMMs per node.
“Atos is excited to reinforce the partnership with AMD with the planned launch of an EPYC Rome blade for our new BullSequana X2410 next year”, said Agnès Boudot, Vice President HPC & Quantum at Atos. “The HPC market was waiting for a new compute engine, offering higher memory bandwidth to increase application performance efficiency. The EPYC family will greatly complement our solution’s portfolio.”
“AMD welcomes the announcement by Atos of their upcoming BullSequana X supercomputing system with AMD EPYC processors,” said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD datacenter products. “As a global leader in high performance computing, Atos is perfectly suited to deliver on the promise of the EPYC product line and the industry’s first 7nm datacenter CPU coming to market from AMD next year.”
