Sixth Annual SC15 Energy Efficient HPC Working Group Workshop
Parallel Computing Pioneer and Former Intel Senior Fellow and Chief Technology Officer, Justin Rattner, will deliver the keynote address at the 6th Annual SC15 Energy Efficient HPC Working Group Workshop.
According to Justin, the exponential increase in chip power demanded that "every aspect of energy efficiency had to be re-engineered to keep total power within the limits of the mechanical and electrical system design. For tomorrow's exascale systems, the three biggest design challenges are power, power, and power.”
