Current high-performance computing systems are designed to efficiently execute floating-pointintensive workloads.1 HPC systems are mainly built for scientific simulations, which are characterized by high computational density and locality, and regular, partitionable data structures. These application requirements are driving processor designs toward fast SIMD (single instruction, multiple data) arithmetic units, and deep cache hierarchies to reduce access latencies.
