High Performance Computing (HPC)

Our research focuses on the application of heterogeneous and many-core computing to solve large-scale scientific problems. Related research problems we are addressing include: performance portability across many-core devices; advanced computer architectures and simulation; and fault tolerance software techniques for resiliency at scale.

  • The group maintains an experimental cluster of some of the fastest and most exotic GPUs and accelerators in the world. 
  • The University of Bristol is one of the few Arm centres of excellence.
  • We offer training in parallel programming.

Isambard is the first of an anticipated growing number of production supercomputers that will deliver significant benefits in terms of price/performance and faster product innovation.
