    Hi All,

    May i know has anyone tried to install LSF on latest AMD EYPC? Is it supported?

    My company currently is considering get a new cluster change and i would like to explore into AMD due to the high cores count that AMD can offer.

    My company currently using LSF version 9.1.2

    Thanks

    We have been running a large EPYC cluster for a year with CentOS 7.x and LSF 10.x without any issues.

    Both AMD and ARM are giving Intel a run for their money presently.  The planned Marvel ThunderX3 ARMv8 chip is going to be a killer with 384 threads and 128 PCIe Gen4 lanes, power scaling that you would expect from an ARM chip and great L1 - L3 cache.  Though not an Intel command set which presents a blocker for many customers, I think it's going to stir things up though.

    LSF works on pretty much anything Intel, AMD, and now the latest ARM processors as well.  We support other chipsets like Sparc and Power too.
