TOKYO, Japan, Oct. 1 — Today,AMD and Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) , announced the deployment of AMD EPYC 7702 processors for use in a new, high performance computing system. The EPYC- processor-based supercomputer will deliver the 2.36 petaflops of computing power OIST plans to use for scientific research at the University.
The Scientific Computing & Data Analysis Section (SCDA) of OIST plans to implement the new supercomputer for supporting OIST computationally intensive research ranging from bioinformatics, computational neuroscience, and physics. SCDA adopted AMD EPYC after significant growth, including a 2X increase in users.
“2020 is a milestone year for OIST with new research units expanding the number of research areas. This growth is driving a significant increase in our computational needs,” said
