XC30 CPU Description
Print this article
The compute blade architecture of the XC30 is similar to the CPU blades of Titan with a few important differences.
Each node has two sockets with 8 physical cores each. Each core has its own level 1 (L1) and level2 (L2) caches. The eight cores on each socket share a 20 MB L3 cache and 32 GB of SDRAM connected by a 4 channel DDR3 pipeline. As shown in the diagram below, each unit of 8 cores with its associated memory and caches can be thought of as a Non-uniform memory access (NUMA) Domaine.
