ABSTRACT
Sparc64 XIfx, the latest high-performance computing processor, includes a 34-core processor and achieves 1.1 teraflops of peak performance. This chip is designed for massive parallel supercomputer systems that realize high performance for a wide range of real applications. As groundwork for exascale supercomputing, it has made major technological changes from the previous Sparc64 processor in the instruction set architecture, microarchitecture, memory modules, and embedded interconnect.
