Tackling the Power and Energy Wall for Future HPC Systems

December 17, 2013

As the cost of powering a supercomputer or a datacenter increases, next generation exascale systems need to be considerably more power- and energy-efficient than current supercomputers to be of practical use. Unlike petascale systems, where the primary concern was performance, exascale systems need to climb the power and energy walls in order to deliver sustainable exaflops performance. Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNNL) researchers are exploring holistically energy and power efficiency aspects at all levels of granularity, from processor architecture to system integration.
