Six Steps to a More Energy-Efficient CAE Environment with Altair and AMD EPYC™ CPUs

Reducing the carbon footprint of modern high-performance computing (HPC) data centers isn't just important for the planet, it's critical to organizations' bottom lines. In this infographic, learn how Altair and AMD technology can make modern HPC data centers more energy-efficient and how organizations can make their computing operations more sustainable for the business and the planet.

3. Includes high-performance CPU and GPU accelerators used for AI training and High-Performance Computing in a 4-Accelerator, CPU hosted configuration. Goal calculations are based on performance scores as measured by standard performance metrics (HPC: Linpack DGEMM kernel FLOPS with 4k matrix size. AI training: lower precision training-focused floating-point math GEMM kernels such as FP16 or BF16 FLOPS operating on 4k matrices) divided by the rated power consumption of a representative accelerated compute node including the CPU host + memory, and 4 GPU accelerators.
