Smaller can be better, especially when it is a supercomputer. Cray, a company often credited with building the world’s first supercomputer, has reduced the size of its largest machine.
Blue Waters – one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world – was officially declared available for use in a ceremony held at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Thursday.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have performed record simulations using all 1,572,864 cores of Sequoia, the largest supercomputer in the world. Sequoia, based on IBM BlueGene/Q architecture, is the first machine to exceed one million computational cores. It also is No. 2 on the list of the world's fastest supercomputers, operating at 16.3 petaflops (16.3 quadrillion floating point operations per second). The simulations are...
The most advanced gaming PCs rely on quad-core processors, but that pales to what researchers have created with a new record in computational science.
