HPCG Performance List announced at SC23

HPCG Performance List announced at SC23

The new HPCG Performance List was announced at the SC23 event in Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado, USA. The session entitled Highlights of the 62th TOP500 List took place on Tuesday, November 14, 2023.

The majority of the HPCG results are now integrated in the TOP500 list. The 20th HPCG Performance List of results contains the complete collection of the submissions, some of which might have not made it into the official TOP500 list due to a number of factors such as a low HPL benchmark result or a missed deadline for the TOP500 submission.

This is the twentieth list produced by running the HPCG benchmark, which was designed to complement the traditional High Performance LINPACK (HPL) benchmark used by the TOP500 team as their official metric for ranking world's largest systems. The first HPCG list was announced at ISC 2014 over eight years ago, and contained 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 over 110 entries, as HPCG continues to gain traction in the HPC community.

These 110+ systems from the HPCG list are also ranked by TOP500. However, the HPCG ranking continues to provide a significantly different ordering of the machines when compared to the TOP500 ranking. Both Fugaku and Frontier systems continue to open the list with 16 and 14 Pflop/s of achieved performance, respectively.

Summary highlights from the 20th HPCG list include:

  • New result from the upgraded LUMI increased its performance to about 3-times slower than the #1 and #2 systems from being 5-times slower in previous lists.
  • Perlmutter was upgraded but did not submit a new result thus it's fraction of peak performance dropped from 2% to 1.7%.
  • To make it into the exclusive top-10 ranking, requires at least 1 Pflop/s.
