This paper describes the development of the Non-Hydrostatic Icosahedral Model (NIM), a dynamical core that was designed to exploit MPFG processors.
The selection of the F V3 dynamical core to be part of the Next Generation Global Prediction System (NGGPS) run by NWS in 2020 has accelerated efforts to port it to MPFG processors.
Many core and GPUs represent a new class of computing called MPFG. In contrast to CPU chips with up to 18 cores, these fine-grain processors contain hundreds to thousands of computational cores.
But when the House of Commons register of members' interests was published yesterday, MPFG stood out so much it was impossible not record his latest achievement.
MPFG's support for Iraqi tyrant Saddam Hussien and his vehement opposition to United Nations sanctions against the murderous Iraqi regime are well known and he has built a controversial career out of his links with the country.
Astonishingly, MPFG also added to his collection of watches received as presents from middle- eastern leaders.
MPFG also puts his fellow Scottish MPs in the shade with his earnings outside Parliament.
For a weekly column in a little-read Scottish edition of a London-based Sunday newspaper, MPFG receives an astonishing pounds 60,001-pounds 65,000.
