Query regarding to HPC suitable for WRF

Postby tony333 » Thu Sep 03, 2015 4:45 am

We are going to buy a High performance Computer, thus we want to know if the IBM S8222L Power, machine type 8247-22L ~ about 10 Teraflops is suitable for running WRF, and also we need to know whether CPU or GPU is more efficient and suitable for that.
thanks

Hi...

GPU support is yet to be included in WRF. There is limit code in 3.6. Nothing additional was
mentioned in 3.7.

I spent a lot of time this past spring tying to get speedups on STAMPEDE, but couldn't. The
fastest I could get was the ordinary everyday compile.

Any modern supercomputer should have no problem.
