IBM Signs $320 Million Supercomputing Deal With Dept. Of Energy. Dubbed Sierra and Summit, the two GPU-accelerated supercomputers will rely on IBM’s OpenPOWER chips, Nvidia’s new graphics chip Volta, and Mellanox’s high-speed networking to wire everything together. The US Department of Energy intends to build the world’s fastest supercomputer by 2017 – a 300 petaFLOPS monster that would trounce today’s most powerful super: China’s 54 PFLOPS Tianhe-2. Summit is intended for civilian and scientific use at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, and is the more powerful of the two, capable of delivering 150 to 300 peak petaflops. — The fastest supercomputers ...
