New supercomputer coming to EMSL this summer, supplied by Atipa Technologies
Date:1/24/2013

96,000 processing units are Intel processors combined with Intel Phi many integrated core (MIC) accelerator cards. The accelerator cards will ratchet up the power. They work with the conventional processors and memory and allow up to 120 extra calculations per node to be performed simultaneously rather than one at a time. (Anyone with a graphics card in their personal computer has taken advantage of a hardware accelerator.)

The system's 23,000 Intel processors have 184,000 gigabytes (184,000 billion bytes) of memory available, about four times as much memory per processor as other supercomputers. The additional memory will allow scientists to use the processors more efficiently for biology, climate research, chemistry and materials science.

Atipa will deliver the computer's components by July 2013 and assemble it at EMSL. The EMSL team will spend a few months installing and configuring the system and getting it up to speed. They expect to have it running for national and international researchers in October 2013. In the meantime, EMSL will be sponsoring a naming contest among EMSL users and friends.

The New Supercomputer's Fast Facts:

  • Theoretical peak processing speed of 3.4 petaflops
  • 42 racks
  • 195,840 cores
  • 1440 compute nodes with conventional processors and Intel Xeon Phi "MIC" accelerators
  • 128 GB memory per node
  • FDR Infiniband network
  • 2.7 petabyte shared parallel filesystem (60 gigabytes per second read/write)
  • Working reference: HPCS4A
