Title Evaluation of ClearSpeed Accelerators for HPC
Abstract ClearSpeed Accelerator Tera-scale System (CATS) has been evaluated in an HPC setup by running a number of benchmarks and real applications. Our tests demonstrated a significant advantage of the technology in terms of performance per Watt and density of compute power over the current commodity offerings. However this needs to be set against considerations of ?total cost of ownership? and the real benefit of the ClearSpeed acceleration technology currently appears to be the ability to deliver greater performance in HPC data centres which are limited by the power and/or space available rather than purchase and running costs.
