    News - Intel claims supercomputing dominance

    AMD hardware might reside at the heart of the world's most powerful supercomputer, but over 80 per cent of the Top 500 carry Intel Inside.

    I guess the previous amd-positive title wasnt good enough?

    Re: News - Intel claims supercomputing dominance

    LOL... Intel claim quantity while AMD claims quality. I wonder which is more important...

    20 out of 50 of the top 50 super computers use Intel CPU's. So the other 30 supercomputers(in the top 50, with 4 top 5) are using AMD, not exactly something to boast about when you are Intel.

    Guess they will try to boast about anything to try steal AMD's thunder.

    No my friend, if you knew anything, or did any research you would know that Intel and AMD are not the only Supercomputer Chip makers. Acutally, AMD is in 3rd with the number of supercomputers with AMD chipsets. 42 (completly unrelated to the answer of Life, the Universe and Everything) is the number of AMD chipsets in the top 500 supercomputer list. Intel bags 396/500. When the numbers are THAT polarized, quanitity vs quality is rediculous since AMD processors are cheaper. That means even though it costs less for an AMD setup, Intel supercomputers reign supreme.

    You said quantity vs quality is ridiculous then spout that Intel reigns supreme because they have more processors... you just contradicted yourself in the same post. Well done.

    In terms of your link. The list is representative of the data throughput of the computer chips. Not about how many exist, how much they cost or what they actually do. It's about how much they are capable of doing when operated.

    The fact that Intel force feed their processors down organisations throats through advertising and monopolistic business practises, which they have been found guilty of, is not a good measure of supremacy.

    +1. i guess he's a intel fanboy . supercomputers aren't benchmarked with how many supercomputers are made with a brand of processor but how fast they process a data. Pity intel, in the 500 list, 4 in the top 5 spots are amd based supercomputers than intel based supercomputers considering they have more entries.

    The Opteron is definitely well suited to supercomputing. Solid FPU and CPU node architecture == crunching win.

    not to mention that amd tend to make there upgraded processors drop in replacements that fit in the same power and heat envelopes as the previous gen. meaning there there an inexpensive (relativity) to upgrade

    Yeah, Intel can't even get the same product family onto the same socket. It's pretty ridiculous.

    Funny claim, if someone really wants to have a feast, there's always a reason...

    Probably there are more FIATs on the road than Ferraris, but which one is more desirable?
