This is a hands-on workshop where participants will use code snippets to illustrate the best approach to accessing the power of our new AMD ROME CPUs based at Durham & Leicester. This training will also be useful to anyone using the AMD CPUs on the GPU systems at Cambridge and Edinburgh.

The workshop will cover:

  • The ROME Microarchitecture & Memory channels
  • Pinning processes
  • AMD Compilers and libraries
  • MPI considerations
  • uProf tutorial
  • Hands-on examples spread throughout the day


The virtual workshop will be run on multiple DiRAC sites so you will be able to experience exactly what you need to do on the system you use.

  • Support will be there from AMD and the local technical support teams.
  • A shared slack channel will be available to ask questions, highlight any issues and share good practice between sites.

Target Audience

The target audience is researchers:

  • Those who are interested in building and running their code on our new DiRAC-3 AMD systems.
  • Those who want to run their code efficiently to get the best performance.
  • Those who want to take advantage of the new AMD features and tools.


Only basic experience of a language is required C/C++, or Python.
