How to setup PowerShell nicely for using git with command completion and color highlighted shell prompt git status/action notifications.
Starting 2020 off with an addition to my writing, “micro blogging” via GitHub Gists
It’s the end of the 2010’s and start of 2020’s. Time to reflect …
The Super Computing conference annual US counterpart is always a great meeting. It’s a chance to see the trend and get sentiment for the highest performance end of computing. I have written up a few observations and provided a few interesting links for SC19.
In this post I’m going to show you a simple way to significantly speedup Python numpy compute performance on AMD CPU’s when using Anaconda Python.
AMD Threadripper 3970x 32-core! …The, third new AMD processor I’ve had the pleasure of trying recently. I’m running it through the same double precision floating point performance tests as the recently tested Ryzen processors, Linpack and NAMD.
The, much anticipated, AMD Ryzen 3950x 16-core processor is out! As always the first thing I wanted know was the double precision floating point performance. My two favorite applications for a “first look” at a new CPU are Linpack and NAMD.
It’s time for a “Docker with NVIDIA GPU support” update. This post will guide you through a useful Workstation setup (including User-name-spaces and performance tuning) with the new versions of Docker and the NVIDIA GPU container toolkit.
In this post I’ve done more testing with Ryzen 3900X looking at the effect of BLAS libraries on a simple but computationally demanding problem with Python numpy. The results may surprise you! I start with a little bit of history of Intel vs AMD performance to give you what may be a new perspective on the issue.
This is a short post showing a performance comparison with the RTX2070 Super and several GPU configurations from recent testing. The comparison is with TensorFlow running a ResNet-50 and Big-LSTM benchmark.
