AMD powers 121 of the Top 500 Supercomputers

The Top 500 list of the fastest supercomputers in the world was released today and AMD continues its impressive winning streak with 121 systems powered by its own processors – a year-over-year increase of 29%.

AMD continues to hold the #1 position in the Top 500 with its Frontier supercomputer, while its test and development system based on the same architecture continues to hold the second place in energy efficiency metrics on the Green 500 list.

Overall, AMD also owns seven of the top ten systems on the Green 500 list Frontier powered by AMD remains the only fully certified super exascale class on the planet, as the two-exaflop Intel-powered Aurora has yet to submit a benchmark after years of delays.

Instead, Frontier is now fully functional and by researchers in many scientific papers. In fact, Frontier continues to improve with adjustments – the system entered the Top 500 list with 1,02 exaflops of performance in June 2022, and now has 1,194 exaflops, an increase of 17%.
That's an impressive increase over the same 8.699.904 CPU cores that the PC originally came with. To see what we're talking about, that extra 92 petaflops of performance represents the same amount of computing power as the entire Perlmutter system ranked eighth in the Top 500.
