Computational Engineering – Bridging the gap between the disciplines

FAU student team wins the SC22 Student Cluster Competition HPCG Challenge

At the SC22 conference last week in Dallas, TX, student teams from all over the world took part in the Student Cluster Competition, a contest that requires operating an HPC system and running a selection of high-performance applications as fast as possible under a strict power constraint. The FAU team “FRAUG” was jointly organized by the Chair of Computer Science 3 (Computer Architecture) and the NHR@FAU. The team consists of six bachelor students from Computer Science and Computational Engineering. They chose to use a single node from our “Alex” cluster, i.e., an AMD-based host with eight NVIDIA A100 GPUs. MEGWARE kindly took care of delivering it to the conference–>
