The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded Intel a contract to deliver the nation’s most powerful supercomputer at Argonne National Laboratory. The 180 PetaFLOPS system is being developed to help advance U.S. leadership in scientific research and keep America at the forefront of next generation extreme-scale computing, and maintain its position at the forefront of next generation exascale computing for years to come.
HPC has reached an inflection point with the convergence of traditional HPC and the emerging world of big data analytics. Intel’s HPC scalable system framework enables an unprecedented level of system balance, performance and scalability necessary to meet the demands of both compute- and data-intensive workloads, today and well into the future.
