AMD & Cray Secure 9-digit DOE Contract

Recommended Posts

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is the largest US Department of Energy science and energy laboratory. While most people who are familiar with Oak Ridge National Laboratory likely associate it with its nuclear research, it also works hard to sustain US leadership in high-performance computing. It is currently home to the world’s fastest supercomputer known as Summit. Summit has a peak performance of 200 petaFLOPS (one thousand million million FLoating-point Operations Per Second), which is almost twice that of the second place supercomputer, which is also owned and operated by the USA. The third-place supercomputer, Sunway TaihuLight, has virtually identical performance and is operated by China. The new supercomputer, named Frontier, that AMD & Cray have been contracted to build will blow them all out of the water with a targeted performance of 1.5 exaFLOPS (one billion billion FLOPS) which would be more than 7 times faster than the current fastest supercomputer and an entire order of magnitude faster than the second and third place supercomputers.
