Intel® True Scale Fabric—Enhanced HPC Architecture and Performance
Today’s HPC clusters tend to be larger in terms of node count, and each node is now using faster, denser core count processors. This means that performance at scale is critical to optimize application performance on these larger, faster clusters. The performance of the interconnect is the key factor that determines the performance of the HPC cluster at scale. Also, the high-performance interconnect can account for up to 30% of the cost of an HPC cluster. Therefore, the price performance of the interconnect is a key consideration when purchasing an HPC cluster.
The Intel® True Scale Fabric architecture is designed for HPC clustering implementations requiring superior performance across large node counts, but at an economical price. The following are the key elements of the Intel® True Scale Architecture.
