From the beginning of computer history, there has been strong demand for faster speed of computations, while at the same time there is growing demand for lower cost including lower operating cost and ease-of-use. In order to respond to these demands, there are three major points from the technological aspects though those are not limited to high performance computing area. The state-of-art technologies however, are always required to achieve the highest speed particularly in high performance computing.

The following three technologies are discussed in this talk.
  • Architecture

  • Hardware Technology

  • Software Technology
