CoreType Explorer

CoreType Explorer is currently in Open Beta. Please contact your organization’s Solution Architect or Account Executive for setup and configuration assistance.

CoreType Explorer overview

CoreType Explorer is a tool for users that helps them visually understand what cores would be used for given use cases. It is broken down into two components:

  1. CoreType Specifications
  2. Performance Index (NOT YET AVAILABLE)

The intended user of this tool are IT Administrators and R&D Engineers who are looking to optimize their workloads. 

Getting Started with CoreType Explorer

CoreType Explorer can be accessed in two different ways:

  1. Jobs > Hardware Settings > Compare coretypes using the Coretype Explorer link
  2. Organization or Workspace Admin > Policies > CoreType Explorer

As always, you can directly navigate to CoreType Explorer by clicking this link.

CoreType Explorer Features

CoreType Specification

The CoreType Explorer will allow you to get into the nitty gritty information of core types. From this tab, you will be able to visualize and inspect the following details:

  • Coretype
  • Processor Info
  • Cores / Node
  • Base Clock Speed (GHz)
  • Network Bandwidth (Gbps)
  • Network Latency (μs)
  • Instruction Set
  • Memory / Node
  • Memory / Core
  • GPU Info
  • GPUs / Node
  • Storage / Node
  • Storage / Core
  • Price – ODE
  • Price – ODP

CoreType Explorer will enable you to select any of these fields and compare CoreTypes against each other.
