HPC System Processor Preference: x86 Continues to Dominate
Authors: Melissa Riddle and Mark Nossokoff
Publication Date: July 2023
For the largest HPC system at the surveyed sites, the primary processor type for future system purchases was x86, at 85.2% of the sites, led by Intel (68.0%) and AMD (14.4%). The next largest identified primary processor was the IBM Power or OpenPower chips at 3.9%. Despite its growing visibility in the overall HPC sector, Arm-based components were only a small percentage of the overall processor space at 3.9%. This data is from an annual study that is part of the eighth edition of Hyperion Research’s HPC end-user-based tracking of the HPC marketplace. It included 181 HPC end-user sites with 3,830 HPC systems.

Melissa Riddle and Mark Nossokoff
Slurm continues to be the most popular job queuing, resource manager, or scheduling software at HPC sites around the world. In a recent study, Slurm maintained its lead with half of all respondents (50.0%) reporting they use Slurm at least some of the time. After Slurm, the most popular resource managers and schedulers were OpenPBS (18.9%), PBS Pro (13.9%), Torque (13.3%), NQS (12.2%), and LSF (10.6%). This data is from an annual study that is part of the eighth edition of Hyperion Research's HPC end-user-based tracking of the HPC marketplace. It included 181 HPC end-user sites with 3,830 HPC systems.
