The NCSA Delta CPU allocation type provides access to the Delta CPU-only nodes. The Delta CPU resource comprises 124 dual-socket compute nodes for general purpose computation across a broad range of domains able to benefit from the scalar and multi-core performance provided by the CPUs, such as appropriately scaled weather and climate, hydrodynamics, astrophysics, and engineering modeling and simulation, and other domains using algorithms not yet adapted for the GPU. Each Delta CPU node is configured with 2 AMD EPYC 7763 (“Milan”) processors with 64-cores/socket (128-cores/node) at 2.55GHz and 256GB of DDR4-3200 RAM. An 800GB, NVMe solid-state disk is available for use as local scratch space during job execution. All Delta CPU compute nodes are interconnected to each other and to the Delta storage resource by a 100 Gb/sec HPE Slingshot network fabric.
