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:
- CoreType Specifications
- 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:
- Jobs > Hardware Settings > Compare coretypes using the Coretype Explorer link
- Organization or Workspace Admin > Policies > CoreType Explorer
As always, you can directly navigate to CoreType Explorer by clicking this link.
CoreType Explorer Features
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:
- 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.
For example, if you care about memory and price, the Carbon CoreType might be the choice for you here.
Performance Index is not yet available from within CoreType Explorer. Release date target: 2022Q2.
This feature will let users benchmark coretypes for specified use cases and workload sizes
