In a recent report, it has been confirmed that Advanced Micro Devices has managed to get as much as $12.6 million for research work, which is based on “FastForward”. Furthermore, $9.6 million for AMD for processor-related research, while $3 million for memory-related research have been injected. Headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., AMD has expanded to Austin backed by some 2,500 employees.
It is to be noted that FastForward, which is aimed at instigating partnerships with companies for extensive research work based on extreme scale computing, is collaboration between DOE office of science, and national nuclear security administration (NNSA).
It has further been explained that the development of high performance, energy-efficient processor and memory technologies are extremely important for completing the objectives set by DOE, and as far as developing innovative designs for these components is concerned, it would be done by AMD.
“AMD will undertake work to drive advances in memory bandwidth and communication speed, which are essential for heterogeneous architecture, exascale-class supercomputers with thousands of processors”, said Alan Lee, AMD’s corporate Vice President of research and advanced development, while asserting that this financial award would surely make a hell lot of difference in the time to come.
It would be worth seeing how AMD which had enough experience in the field of supercomputer projects would achieve the aim set.
