The Weekly Top Five features the five biggest HPC stories of the week, condensed for your reading pleasure. This week, we cover ISRO’s newest supercomputer; Tokyo Tech’s selection of EM Photonics’ CULA library; Intel’s 3-D transistor breakthrough; the latest LSF Tools from Platform Computing; and SciNet’s new NextIO GPU-based system.
When the TSUBAME 2.0 supercomputer is formally inaugurated in December, it will officially be declared the fastest supercomputer in Japan. However, it’s not simply speed that separates this machine; boasting a raw performance of 2.4 petaflops, the new TSUBAME exceeds the total FLOPS capacity of all other government and academic supercomputers in Japan today. That kind of computational brawn will make it the platform of choice for some of the most powerful scientific applications on the planet.
Tokyo Tech releases more details on Tsumabe 2.0 in anticipation of fall startup; and several Web-centric servers make their debut. We recap those stories and more in our weekly wrapup.
Cray wins NNSA supercomputing contract; and Tokyo Tech researchers make breakthroughs in weather forecasting using GPU computing. We recap those stories and more in our weekly wrapup.
