US funds effort to regain supercomputing crown from China

IBM Signs $320 Million Supercomputing Deal With Dept. Of Energy. In what could be called a supercomputing arms race, China last year beat the U.S. by building the fastest computer in the world. One quadrillion calculations per second: that’s the level at which a new generation of supercomputers, to be built by IBM and Nvidia for the Department of Energy, will operate.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 two companies landed a $325-million contract on Friday to build two machines: one to simulate nuclear scenarios ...

IBM to Build DoE’s Next-Gen Coral Supercomputers

IBM Signs $320 Million Supercomputing Deal With Dept. Of Energy. (Reuters) – The U.S. IBM and Nvidia have entered into a deal with the Department of Energy to build two huge supercomputers capable of performing calculations five to seven times faster than the most advanced systems currently in use in the US according to a report from CNET. The DOE is awarding $325 million to build “Summit” for Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee and “Sierra” at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California. The supercomputers, to be installed in 2017, will be based on next-generation IBM POWER servers with NVIDIA® Tesla® GPU accelerators and NVIDIA NVLink™ high-speed ...
