IBM has come together with over 85 technology companies including founding partners Google, Nvidia, Mellanox, and Tyan to launch the OpenPOWER foundation.  The innovation coming from this group is going beyond semiconductor manufacturing alone (with its increasing challenges) to extend Moore's law at the system and application level.  This talk will demonstrate numerous innovations from the OpenPOWER group and show how these are having profound impact on the High Performance Compute community as demonstrated by the recently announced $325M 200 PFLOP US Dept. of Energy win announced at Super-Computing 2014.  Innovation examples include recently announced technologies such as the massive bandwidth, low-latency NVlink connection between future Power processors and Nvidia GPUs, the industries first coherent PCIe attach high-performance network adapter from Mellanox, and another industry first leverage coherent PCIe (CAPI) to attach 40TB of Flash to a Power8 system as "slow memory" versus high-speed storage.
