What is high performance computing
High performance computing (HPC), also known as Supercomputing, is a area for developing supercomputer and its software and applications. It integrates system, network and parallel programming to solve large-scale problems in science, engineering, or business.
Why need high performance computing
Many real-world pplications require great computional power, which can only be provided by high performance computing and supercomputers.
Supercomputer simulation is one of main methods for modern nuclear test.
High performance computing brings more accurate and more timely weather forecast results.
Deep learning models have increasingly demanding needs for computational resources.
