News AMD and SiPearl Team Up for Arm-Based Exascale Supercomputers


SiPearl's Rhea system-on-chip (SoC) for high-performance computing (HPC) applications packs 72 Arm Neoverse Zeus cores
Zeus is the codename for the Neoverse V1 cores, like those in Amazon's Graviton 3 that launched about an entire year ago! Had to look that up. I don't know why they even bother with code names.

Anyway, Graviton uses TSMC N5, while the SiPerl Rhea is going to use N6, even while launching probably 1.5 years later.

SiPearl's Rhea processor is currently being implemented by Open-Silicon Research, a contract developer of chips from India.
Um, wow. I honestly would've expected them to do the development in Europe, with mostly European workers.
