Preparing Applications for Aurora: Early Successes in Porting HPC Workloads to PVC

In the coming year, Argonne will begin deploying the Aurora Exascale supercomputer powered by Intel Ponte-Vecchio (PVC) GPUs and Sapphire Rapids CPUs. This talk will provide an overview of the Aurora system hardware and software, and the progress that has been made in preparing complex HPC applications to run on it. A diverse portfolio of applications is being developed to perform novel leading edge science on Aurora when it is available, including over forty applications from the Exascale Computing Project and the Aurora Early Science project. Progress in developing, porting, and optimizing these applications for Aurora will be presented.
