"E.T. International’s SWARM Runtime System Achieves Significant
 Performance Improvements on Graph 500 for Intel Endeavor"
 June 14, 2011

  "E.T. International, Inc. (ETI), a provider of system software
   solutions for hybrid and many-core hardware architectures, today
   announced significant speed improvements of the Graph 500 benchmarks
   on the Intel Endeavor supercomputer when using ETI's SWARM
   (SWift Adaptive Runtime Machine) system software. 

   ETI's SWARM runtime system improves the Graph 500 execution time by
   up to 11-fold over MPI.  When compared with the published 2010
   Graph 500 list, this result would put SWARM into the top two.
   Specifically, at 256 nodes (Scale 33), it delivers 6.9 giga-edges
   per second (GE/s), and at 128 nodes (Scale 32), 4.2 GE/s.

ちなみに、November 2010版の 1位 ~ 3位は
Complete Results November 2010
1: Intrepid (IBM BlueGene/P, 8192 nodes/32k cores), Argonne National Laboratory
   Scale 36 (Medium), 6.6 GE/s: Optimized
2: Franklin (Cray XT4, 500 of 9544 nodes), NERSC
   Scale 32 (Small), 5.22 GE/s: Optimized
3: cougarxmt (128 node Cray XMT), Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
   Scale 29 (Mini), 1.22 GE/s: Optimized

5: Endeavor (256 node, 512 core Westmere X5670 2.93, IB network),
   Intel Corporation, Scale 29 (Mini), 533 ME/s: Reference
9: Endeavor (128 node, 256 core Westmere X5670 2.93, IB network),
   Intel Corporation, Scale 26 (Toy), 615.8 ME/s, Reference

SWARMの開発は Intelと共同ですが、冒頭のプレスリリースで:
  "As a software partner in the Intel-led team for DARPA's Ubiquitous
   High Performance Computing (UHPC) program, ETI developed the SWARM
   runtime system technology for the UHPC initiative and improved the
   Graph 500 benchmark performance on the Endeavor supercomputer by
   using this system software instead of MPI.  Intel's UHPC team,
   jointly funded by Intel and DARPA, includes ETI Vice President of
   R&D Dr. Rishi Khan among its principal investigators."
