(PP14) Mont-Blanc 2020, European Scalable, Modular and Power Efficient HPC Processor
TimeTuesday, June 26th3:15pm - 3:45pm
DescriptionFollowing on from the three successive Mont-Blanc projects since 2011, the three core partners Arm, Barcelona Supercomputing Center and Bull (Atos Group) have united again to trigger the development of the next generation of industrial processor for Big Data and High Performance Computing.
The Mont-Blanc 2020 project intends to pave the way to the future low-power European processor for Exascale. It is at the heart of the European exascale supercomputer effort since most of the IP that will be developed as part of Mont-Blanc 2020 will be reused and productized in the European Processor Initiative (EPI).
To improve the economic sustainability of the processor generations that will result from the Mont-Blanc 2020 effort, the project includes the analysis of the requirements of other markets. The project’s strategy based on modular packaging would make it possible to create a family of SoCs targeting different markets, such as “embedded HPC” for autonomous driving.
