NEC SX-Aurora Tops Energy Efficiency on HPCG Benchmark
The NEC SX-Aurora TSUBASA is a vector processor of the NEC SX architecture family. Unlike the previous SX supercomputers, the SX-Aurora TSUBASA is provided as a PCIe card, termed by NEC as a "Vector Engine" (VE). Eight VE cards can be inserted into a vector host (VH) which is typically a x86-64 server running the Linux operating system. The product has been announced in a press release on October 25 2017 and NEC has started selling it in February 2018. The product succeeds the SX-ACE.
