We are pleased to announce an invited talk by Benjamin Huth from the University of Regensburg about “Vectorized matrix-multiplication on the NEC SX-Aurora.”

The NEC SX-Aurora “Tsubasa” is NEC’s latest vector processor architecture. Last year, RRZE has acquired a system with two “Tsubasa” vector accelerators. They feature a memory bandwidth of close to 1 TByte/s and the well-known vector computing paradigm, thus enabling high performance for data-hungry vectorizable application codes.

Benjamin Huth ported important algorithms from Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) to this interesting machine and will report about his experience with it.
