Events: 9th HPCG Performance List
9th HPCG Performance List
HPCG Performance List was announced at a BOF at SC 2017

The HPCG results are now integrated into the TOP500 list. The main HPCG list of results contains the complete list of submissions some of which might have not made the TOP500 list.

The bi-annual High Performance Conjugate Gradients (HPCG) Benchmark list was announced on June 25, 2018 at the ISC 2018 conference in Frankfurt am Main in Germany. The session entitled TOP500, Green500 & HPCG Awards took place on Monday, June 25, 2018 in Panorama Room at 10:45 in Messe Frankfurt.

This is the ninth list produced for the benchmark designed to complement the traditional High Performance LINPACK (HPL) benchmark used as the official metric for ranking the TOP500 systems. The first HPCG list was announced at ISC 2014 over four years ago, containing only 15 entries. Since then, HPCG list was released bi-annually and the number of entries has steadily increased as the new results became available. The current list contains 130 entries as HPCG continues to gain traction in the HPC community.

It is now customary that the new list contains entries from many of the TOP500's highest ranked, mainly top-50 systems. The current list is no exception. However, the HPCG ranking continues to provide a significantly different ordering of the machines when compared with the TOP500 ranking. A major change in TOP500 ranking is now reflected in the HPCG results. Summit and Sierra supercomputers lead the HPCG list with their score breaking the 1 Pflop/s barrier and almost approaching 3 Pflop/s for the number 1 system.

Summary highlights from the 9th HPCG list include:

  • Top 1 machine achieve nearly 3 Pflop/s with 2.9 Pflop/s score
  • Two machines at the top scored over 1 Pflop/s.
  • For the first time, no Chinese machines are present in the top 5 replaced by three US, one Japanese, and one Swiss machine.
