Innovation and the Role of Instruction Set Architecture

SESSION: HPC Futures and Exascale

EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums

TIME: 4:00PM - 4:30PM

SESSION CHAIR: Victor Eijkhout

Presenter(s):John Hengeveld



Most everyone agrees that the exascale era and beyond will require substantial innovation in system architecture. However, an interesting debate surrounds the role of specific Instruction Set Architecture as an attribute of system innovation. We will look beyond the standard meme of energy efficiency and discuss how Instruction Set Architecture elements map to emerging issues in HPC. We’ll also explore the necessary attributes for HPC ISA, HPC processors, and the system around them to address the workloads that are driving us into exascale. Finally, we’ll look at how the ARM® ecosystem is driving innovation and how HPC researchers and developers can prepare for system deployments on ARMv8-based HPC systems.
