2022 Readers’ & Editors’ Choice Awards – Best Sustainability Innovation in HPC

Best Sustainability Innovation in HPC

Readers’ Choice Awards

The Frontier supercomputer, a collaboration of HPE, AMD, DOE, and ORNL, is both the fastest ranked supercomputer in the world (at 1.102 Linpack exaflops) and the second-most energy-efficient (at 52.23 gigaflops per watt). It is outranked only on the Green500 list by its own test and development system (Frontier-TDS), which achieved first place on the list with 62.68 gigaflops per watt. These achievements of the Frontier supercomputers show that energy efficiency does not have to come at the cost of best-in-class performance.

Editors’ Choice Awards

HPE and AMD top four: One recent trend is that many of the most powerful supercomputers in the world are also among the most energy efficient. To that end, HPE and AMD supplied the top four most energy-efficient systems in the world (DOE/ORNL’s Frontier-TDS and Frontier; EuroHPC/CSC’s LUMI; and GENCI’s Adastra), with three of those systems also ranking in the top ten most powerful supercomputers.
