JAIST Announces New World Record SPEC CPU2006 Results with SGI UV 3000

September 26, 2016

We at SGI are excited to share that JAIST, the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology has set new world records of 50,200 for SPECint®_rate_base2006 and 51,500 for SPECfp®_rate_base2006 with their SGI® UV™ 3000 system. The SPECrate® metrics measure the throughput or capacity of a machine to carry out a number of simultaneous tasks. They are based on real world application codes and are highly valued as representative workloads for large, multi-processor systems.

JAIST was founded in October 1990 as the first independent national graduate school in Japan, to carry out graduate education based on research at the highest level in advanced science and technology. The JAIST SGI UV 3000 is a single shared memory system with 256 Intel® Xeon® E5-4655 v3 processors (1536 cores) and 32 terabytes of memory. The JAIST SGI UV 3000 high-performance system supports researchers and developers in various areas including large-scale simulation, machine learning, and high-speed algorithm research.

With this recent record, SGI is now at the top of the published SPECint_rate_base2006 and SPECfp_rate_base2006 results.
