+Matthew Knepley Thanks for sharing the xkcd comic on scientific paper quality. I forwarded it to my sister - have a look at what she put on her office door ;-)

Latest update: "42 Years of Microprocessor Trend Data".

Inspired and kick-started by +Denis Demidov and his wife: My first home-made yoghurt! HPC^1 matters! :-)

Our CSE codes get more and more complex. Let us not forget about the many sound tools and principles from software engineering to deal with the complexity. This workshop spanning many different institutions looked at how CSE can benefit from software engineering and vice versa.
https://www.nitrd.gov/news/CSESSP_Workshop_Report.aspx

This report details the challenges and opportunities discussed at the NITRD sponsored multi-agency workshop on Computational Science and Engineering Software Productivity and Sustainability (CSESSP) Challenges, held in Washington, D.C. USA on October 15-16, 2015. The workshop brought together 85 attendees from all branches of the U.S. federal government, industry, academia, and U.S. and international research laboratories to discuss growing concerns over the sustainability of our Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) software foundation, and the productivity of scientists and engineers who develop and use this software. Discussions focused on characterization of the challenges, and opportunities for improved productivity and sustainability going forward. This report comprises workshop and subsequent discussions including a summary of key opportunities for the CSE community going forward.

I'm baffled that Vincent is either
1) not aware of the use of log-scale for plotting data with exponential trend
2) intentionally using a linear scale to deceive readers.
Not to mention that he is comparing theoretical peak bandwidth on the GPU with actual STREAM bandwidth on KNL.

HPCwire, do you have any quality standards?

My comparison of CPUs, GPUs, and MIC has received a 2016 update. Now with #Intel #KNL and #NVIDIA #Pascal data: https://www.karlrupp.net/2013/06/cpu-gpu-and-mic-hardware-characteristics-over-time/

The comparison of 'cores' now considers a GPU streaming multiprocessor  (NVIDIA, compute unit for AMD) as a 'core'. This better reflects the SIMD-like lock-step execution of threads in a warp or wave front.

FLOPs per cycle is also pretty interesting:

Did you know that high-end CPUs today offer more FLOPs per clock cycle than high-end GPUs in 2008? I wasn't aware of it.

I hope that public relation departments at major universities also get the message...
