MADALGO researchers sets world record in energy-efficient sorting

2010.03.09 | Trine Ji Holmgaard Jensen

By combining and engineering algorithm techniques from several of the core theoretical MADALGO research areas, MADALGO researchers at Goethe-University Frankfurt and collaborators at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have set a world record in energy-efficient sorting. For obvious reasons, energy efficient computing is attracting increasing attention. MADALGO researchers beat the former record holders from Stanford University by a factor of three to four on the so-called JouleSort benchmark, where one is to sort 10GB, 100GB and 1TB of data, respectively, as energy efficient as possible.
