AMD EPYC™ Powers Advanced Simulations for new HPC Cluster AT LLNL

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is no stranger to top-notch computing: it’s home to one of the fastest supercomputers in the world. It also is a leader in deploying high performance computing (HPC) clusters for doing large numbers of 3D simulations, as well as chemistry and physics calculations, and materials science computing.

In searching for a commercial processor that could handle the demands of HPC and data analytics, Matt Leininger, Deputy for Advanced Technology Projects, LLNL, said several factors influence the choice of CPU including single core performance, the number of cores, and the memory performance per socket. All these factors drove LLNL to choose the EPYC processor.
