Since 2000, High Performance Computing (HPC) resources have been extremely homogeneous in terms of underlying processors technologies. However, it becomes obvious, looking at the last TOP500, that new trends tend to bring new microarchitectures for General Purpose Processors (GPPs) and new heterogeneous architectures, combining accelerators with GPP, to sustain both numerical simulation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) workflows. The present report provides a consolidated view on the current
