HPC or High-Performance Computing has become a much-needed technology that can help humankind overcome various existential challenges. However, the technology is no longer functioning to its full potential and is expensive. In fact, there is a gap of more than an order of magnitude between the peak performance of a supercomputer and the application performance that users can realistically expect to experience.
In 2020, Axel Kloth (President and CEO) established Abacus Semiconductor Corporation (ASC) with a mission to improve the cost, performance and security, optimizing supercomputers to address the computational challenges faced by the world. The company is rethinking the use of processors, accelerators and high-performance, high-density memories for all HPC applications, including traditional HPC and Big Data as well as in-memory databases.
