MIPS CPUs are at the heart of the world’s greenest supercomputers

Last week we saw the unveiling of the Green500 list, a biannual ranking of the most energy-efficient supercomputers in the world. A Japanese company called PEZY Computing dominates the list, occupying the first, second, third and fifth spots. The PEZY-SC2 SoC at the heart of these systems uses MIPS CPUs.

Judging supercomputers by their energy efficiency is not the standard way to look at supercomputing, since HPC systems are generally all about pure performance. As such they consume a lot of power and generate a lot of heat (and are far from ‘green!’).

But many companies see the value in achieving high performance while keeping power consumption to a minimum. To this end, the Green500 recognizes the leading systems in this area, looking not at all-out performance (that is ranked in a separate list called the TOP500) but instead at performance per watt.

Based on the PEZY-SC2, the Shoubu System B is the number one supercomputer on the most recent list. The Shoubu System B achieves 17 gigaflops per watt – more than double what was achieved by its predecessor, which used PEZY’s previous generation PEZY-SC product. We talked a bit about that when PEZY switched to MIPS.

The MIPS P6600 CPUs in the SC2 system (which replace the underwhelming competitor cores that were previously in the system), are members of the MIPS P-Class family, which represents the higher end of the MIPS performance spectrum. But these CPUs are balanced high-performance CPUs, letting customers create powerful multicore 64-bit SoCs with optimal efficiency. In the PEZY-SC2, the MIPS CPUs share memory space with the PEZY cores to increase performance and reduce data transfer overhead

Of course, the most energy efficient supercomputers aren’t achieved by slick processor architectures alone. In addition to PEZY’s large-scale many-core processors, the leading green supercomputers also make use of submersion liquid cooling systems created by PEZY’s sister company ExaScaler. The combined system – the ZettaScaler-2.2 – brings together two PEZY-SC2 chips with the cooling system solution from ExaScaler.

You can read about the unique architectures of the PEZY-SC2 and ZettaScalar-2.2 on Wikichip – here and here.

Motoaki Saito, M.D., Ph.D. is the Founder, President and CEO of both PEZY and ExaScaler. He is an inventor, an entrepreneur, a medical doctor, and a visionary. He speaks widely about exponential computing and the approaching technological Singularity – when the compute power of machines will surpass the combined intellectual capacity of all human beings.

The term ‘Singularity’ was reportedly first used by John von Neumann in the 1950s, and reached the mainstream largely through Futurist Ray Kurzweil in his 2005 book ‘The Singularity is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology.’ More recently, Kurzweil was interviewed at the SXSW Conference, and shared his latest views on the topic.

We asked Dr. Saito for his thoughts on the future of supercomputing, and here’s what he had to say: “Many futurists see the Singularity occurring around 2045, but I believe it will occur much sooner – perhaps by 2030. This will be driven by commercial and military interests, and by massive increases in computing power. Our teams at PEZY and ExaScaler will deliver extremely powerful AI engines and ExaFLOPS supercomputing technology in next few years – so it’s happening faster than most people think.”

Regarding his use of MIPS in the SC2, Dr. Saito said: “MIPS is a perfect choice for PEZY as we continue to drive toward efficient ExaFLOPS supercomputing. For several decades the MIPS architecture has powered products that deliver a combination of high performance and leading power efficiency. In addition, as partners, PEZY and MIPS share a vision for the future in which artificial intelligence can augment human intelligence to create a better society.”

Dr. Saito also pointed out that he believes PEZY can ultimately eliminate the large host processor in the SC2 system (replacing it with MIPS) – so that’s something we can look forward to.

Rev up sexual activity with lifestyle changes. Although the pharmacology of amphetamine-like psychostimulants at dopamine transporters is well understood, addiction to this class of drugs has proven difficult to deal with. The reason for this disconnection is that while the molecular mechanism of amphetamine action is critical to reinforce drug use, it is only the first step in a sequence of widespread neuroplastic events in brain circuitry. This review outlines the affect of psychostimulants on mesocorticolimbic dopamine projections that mediate their reinforcing effect, and how this action ultimately leads to enduring pathological neuroplasticity in glutamatergic projections from the prefrontal cortex to the nucleus accumbens. Molecular neuroadaptations induced by psychostimulant abuse are described in glutamate neurotransmission, and from this information potential pharmacotherapeutic targets are identified, based upon reversing or countermanding psychostimulant-induced neuroplasticity.

Anxiety Nervousness Headache Dizziness Nausea Insomnia Loss of appetite A rise in blood pressure or changes in heart rate in some people. I m all for taking the natural route when possible, but I have also seen friends and family not address a problem medically while they try a variety of natural treatments, and get much worse than if they would have just gone to a doctor. I also have had some long term side effects from being improperly medicated. Everyone s physiology is different and it sometimes takes awhile to find the right healing for YOU personally. The only thing I am extremely skeptical of is anyone who promises that their cure will solve everything. It’s easy to imagine the potential advantages if they do?etter grades, greater productivity, more creativity. But there may be costs as well, since stimulants have well-known side effects, like sleep problems and appetite suppression, not to mention potential dependence and withdrawal.

However, Psoralea corylifolia may compromise our body defense against oxidative stress because it inhibits mitochondrial complex I. More research on this topic is needed. And all I could see was my annoying brother getting away with what looked like goofing around and making it a career while I was still finding the simplest of things a struggle. Continuing education programs for health providers of college students (both in the community and at student health services) could target improving provider knowledge of potential adverse interactions of stimulants with alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (antidepressants in particular). Additional training for providers and preprofessional students should improve their skills in assessing student self-medication practices as well as identifying and counseling students with symptoms of depression associated with the use of stimulants.
    careful read of the anecdotes reported in the media and entries on websites on the topic suggest that a great deal of individual variation exists with regard to purported effects and experiences. A prevailing attitude, shared by many parents and physicians, is that the nonmedical use of prescription stimulants is benign and therefore not a major concern. In a recent article on the nonmedical use of stimulant medications as & x0201c;study aids,& x0201d; a distinguished physician said, & x0201c;It doesn& x02019;t seem to be causing too much trouble since most use the drugs not to get high but to function better. When exams are over, they go back to normal and stop abusing the drugs.& x0201d; 17 We believe this commonly expressed attitude trivializes nonmedical prescription drug use and exacerbates a serious problem that requires an effective multidisciplinary response. Despite its appeal, there are some serious problems with the RDS model. I’ll name just two. We know from dozens of studies that drug or alcohol use itself leads to a reduction in dopamine receptor density, or at least dopamine receptor activation, because those receptors tend to burn out or become desensitized when we keep bombarding them with fun stuff. Now that’s getting closer to B. B. King’s complaint: The thrill was there for awhile, but now it’s gone. The question remains: is your dopamine landscape more determined by your genes or by how you use them? Problem 2 is that teenagers as a group are often described in terms of reward deficiency syndrome. Teens can be seen as under-stimulated, probably because the reorganization of the nervous system in adolescence is pretty uneven, with new motives often preceding new opportunities for fulfilling them.
