Arm A64FX for HPC

Faster than a speeding array, with extreme flexibility to boot! New Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) devices with 3D stacked memories like Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) and High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) provide not only unprecedented bandwidth for accessing data but also the power of reconfiguration to adapt the hardware to any job, whether it be HPC, cyber-analysis, or graph analytics.

The chick may initially seem small and powerless, but its special power of thread telekinesis (aka thread migration) could prove to be a game changer in terms of future computing architectures. Unlike traditional systems, the Emu Chick provides the ability to move the threads of an application to the data with its mind-bending high-radix interconnect coupled with lightweight processing cores.
