November 2017 Top500
My initial impression of the latest Top500 list, released last month at the SC17 conference in Denver, was that little has changed. This might not be the conclusion that many will have reached, and indeed we will come on to consider some big changes (or perceived big changes) that have been widely discussed, but looking at the Top 10 entries there has been little movement since the previous list (released in June).

As part of the ARCHER Knights Landing (KNL) processor testbed, we have produced and collected a set of benchmark reports on the performance of various scientific applications on the system. This has involved the ARCHER CSE team, EPCC's Intel Parallel Computing Center (IPCC) team, and various users of the system all benchmarking and documenting the performance they have experienced.

As we continue to scale our HPC systems, the energy cost of doing so becomes an increasingly large and potentially limiting factor.
One of the most important aspects of addressing the challenges of energy efficient computing is having a solid understanding of how various design choices, in both software and hardware, affect the overall energy usage of your system and application.
In his guest post, PhD student Blair Archibald discusses how the Adept project is contributing to knowledge in this area.
