Stone Ridge Expands Reservoir Simulation Options with AMD Instinct™ Accelerators

Stone Ridge Technology (SRT) pioneered the use of GPUs for high performance reservoir simulation (HPC) nearly a decade ago with ECHELON, its flagship software product. ECHELON, the first of its kind, engineered from the outset to harness the full potential of massively parallel GPUs, stands apart in the industry for its power, efficiency, and accuracy. Now, ECHELON has added support for AMDInstinct accelerators into its simulation engine, offering new flexibility and optionality to its clients.

Long read DNA sequencing technology is revolutionizing genetic diagnostics and precision medicine by helping us discover structural variants and assemble whole genomes. It also helps us study evolutionary relationships. Lower sequencing costs and high-throughput portable long read sequencers are revolutionizing precision medicine today. Long read sequencers from the top manufacturers including Oxford Nanopore (ONT) and PacBio, can produce reads that are much longer than previous generations of sequencers. However, long reads vary in length and are significantly more error prone than short reads. Sequence alignment (on CPUs) is one of the main bottlenecks in long read processing workflows.
