Abstract Power consumption is a troublesome design constraint for HPC systems. If current trends continue, future petaflop systems will require 100 megawatts of power to maintain high-performance. To address this problem the power and energy characteristics of high performance systems must be characterised. The main idea of this project is to design a methodology for the optimal selection (minimal number of systems that maximise performance and minimise energy consumption) of a network topology for high performance applications using ultra-low-voltage microprocessors platforms (Intel® AtomTM Processor E3825 - Minnowboard).
