6 New Teams Vie to Take Crown in Student Cluster Challenge

Let the supercomputing games begin. In an around-the-clock race spanning two days, the annual Supercomputing Conference Student Cluster Competition will feature 16 teams of undergraduates tackling real-world computing workloads using NVIDIA V100 Tensor Core GPUs. There are six new teams for this year — three each from China and the U.S. — taking on an immersive HPC challenge that demonstrates the breadth of skills, technologies and science that it takes to build, maintain and use supercomputers. They join 10 other teams that have competed previously.
