Key findings from a recent Hyperion Research study showed that accelerated applications are growing as percent of workload, especially in the industry sector. In addition, many HPC users reported that they have or plan to migrate away from CentOS in response to the changing support model. Insights into the critical factors driving these and other trends are detailed in the 2022 iteration of Hyperion Research’s annual MCS end users’ study, 2022 HPC Multi-Client Study: Vertical/Application Workload Areas and HPC System Software and Middleware. Key findings from the report are summarized in this document.
- Updated results continue to indicate substantial returns for investments in HPC: * The data now covers 763 successful HPC projects
- On average $507 dollars in revenue per dollar of HPC invested was generated * On average $47 dollars of profit (or cost savings) per dollar of HPC invested was generated * The average HPC investment per innovation was $2.6 million
Updated Financial ROI and Innovation ROR Results from Investments in HPC

China’s Continuing Pursuit of an Indigenous Semiconductor Production Capability
Steve Conway, Jie Wu, Earl Joseph
Although China represents more than one-third of the global market for semiconductors, the country relies heavily on foreign sources, especially U.S. chipmakers and foundries headquartered in other Asian countries, for a majority of devices critical to Chinese-made products ranging from smartphones to industrial machinery and supercomputers. For the past few decades, China sought to develop an indigenous capability in an effort to reduce its dependence on the foreign supply of components. Its most recent major effort, the “Made-in-China” semiconductor initiative launched in 2015, targeted supplying 40% of China's semiconductor demand with homegrown products by 2020 and 70% by 2025.
