    Phoronix: Intel Releases High Performance Computing Reference Stack 2.0

    Intel has released their High Performance Computing Reference Stack 2.0 as the latest Docker image optimized for HPC/AI workloads...

    The irony of the vendor with the worst (i.e. mostly non-existent) hardware having the most developed open software stack...

      I wonder what this will mean for Scientific Linux.

        Did they give a reason for not using clear ?

          If you go by volume shipped it's AMD that's almost non-existent when compared to Intel

            We're talking GPUs here, so almost non-existent > 0. Also IIRC AMD has shipped a good number of datacentre cards while Intel's supercomputer contract is in hot water.

              By Intel's press release this is both for CPU and GPU. The README on GitHub even has this in it:

              Prerequisites
              HPCRS can run on any host system running Linux which supports IntelĀ® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (IntelĀ® AVX-512) and Docker
              So... it requires a CPU with AVX-512 in order to run?

                I'm aware, but a) Intel's high-end CPU stock (i.e. the stuff that actually has AVX-512) has been equally dodgy, and b) said supercomputer contract is also for CPUs and GPUs.

                Not to mention that the majority focus of Intel PR around this compute stack has been WRT GPUs and other accelerators, not CPUs. I mean kudos to this software team for having a coherent strategy, but it's no secret how dysfunctional the bringup for their recent hardware has been.

                  Yeah I also find this a little confusing.
