AMD announced this morning that its been awarded $12.6 million by the Department of Energy for research into the DoEs Extreme-Scale Computing Research and Development Program. The program weve cheekily titled it ESC-R&D is designed to outsource the creation of new solutions to the exascale computing problem. DARPA launched its own exascale development program earlier this year; the two projects appear to be unaffiliated but clearly overlap as far as their mandate is concerned. AMDs $12.6 million aggregate award is actually two separate amounts for two different projects $9.6M for processor-related research, and $3M for memory research.
