Intel Cites Gains with its Omni-Path Architecture Systems

Intel cited growing momentum in the nine months since Intel Omni-Path Architecture (Intel OPA) began shipping, The company said OPA is becoming the standard fabric for 100 gigabit (Gb) systems, as it is now featured in 28 of the top 500 most powerfulsupercomputers in the world announced at Supercomputing 2016.  Intel believes OPA now has 66 percent of the 100Gb market. This acceptance is twice the number of InfiniBand EDR systems.

Top500 designs include Oakforest-PACS, MIT Lincoln Lab and CINECA. The Intel OPA systems on the list add up to total floating-point operations per second (FLOPS) of 43.7 petaflops (Rmax), or 2.5 times the FLOPS of all InfiniBand* EDR systems.

Intel OPA is an end-to-end fabric solution that improves HPC workloads for clusters of all sizes, achieving up to 9 percent higher application performance and up to 37 percent lower fabric costs on average compared to InfiniBand EDR.
