IBM Specs Out Blue Gene/Q Chip

August 22, 2011

At the Hot Chips conference in Santa Clara last week, IBM lifted the curtain on its Blue Gene/Q SoC, which will soon power some of the highest performing supercomputers in the world. Next year, two DOE labs are slated to boot up the most powerful Blue Gene systems ever deployed: the 10-petaflop "Mira" system at Argonne National Lab, and the 20-petaflop "Sequoia" super at Lawrence Livermore. Both will employ the latest Blue Gene/Q processor described at the conference. Read more…
