ASCI application performance and the impact of commodity processor architectural trends

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The DOE Accelerated Strategic Computing Initiative (ASCI) is an applications-driven program requiring use of scalable, high-performance architectures to meet aggressive engineering needs related to safety of the Nation`s nuclear stockpile. ASCI will accelerate development of computational methods and tools for predictive simulation and for virtual prototyping needed to re-certify the existing stockpile, assess the effects of component aging, and to evaluate accident scenarios. The purpose of this paper is to summarize recent performance results from an important ASCI-related application and to speculate on how trends within the computer industry and in computer architecture relate to these results.
