Over the years, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) has provided support and resources integral to ACCESS and its predecessor, XSEDE. In 2012, TACC debuted Stampede. Five years later, they brought Stampede2 online. Now they bring an all-new supercomputer to the ACCESS portfolio with Stampede3.
The new system will be delivered in Fall 2023, and go into full production in early 2024, with no break in service from Stampede2 to Stampede3. It will serve the open science community from 2024 through 2029. Stampede3 allocations will be available through the ACCESS project to its broad user community.
This new resource has been made possible by a $10 million award for new computer hardware from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Stampede3 will fully join the ACCESS portfolio in 2024, becoming a powerful member of the resource provider team. Researchers around the country will gain the benefits of the NSF’s continued careful curation and support of cyberinfrastructure.
Stampede3 will provide the user community access to CPU nodes equipped with high-bandwidth memory for accelerated application performance. In addition, the transition from Stampede2 to Stampede3 will be transparent to users easing the shift to a new system. I’m confident it will be a popular platform for the broad science and engineering community.Katie Antypas, office director, NSF Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure
“We believe the high bandwidth memory of the Xeon Max CPU nodes will deliver better performance than any CPU that our users have ever seen,” said Stanzione, executive director at TACC. “They offer more than double the memory bandwidth performance per core over the current 2nd and 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor nodes on Stampede2.”
