Trinity Wrestles with Knights Landing Programming Challenge with COE

July 5, 2016

Seventy-one years ago, on July 16, 1945, an incredible explosion lit up the New Mexico night sky. This was the Trinity Test, the world’s first nuclear detonation, and it marked the beginning of the Nuclear Age. It also ushered in the age of supercomputers, which essentially began with weapons science at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Now a new Trinity, a next generation Cray XC supercomputer is about to take center stage to help the national security labs achieve their primary mission – to provide the nation with a safe, secure and effective nuclear deterrent.

Berkeley Lab Contemplates Stepping Stone to Exascale Supercomputer

January 8, 2013

The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Berkeley Lab has recently begun installing Edison, the Cray supercomputer that will exceed two peak petaflops when its fully deployed in a couple of months. But the center is already prepping for its next-generation system, which is expected to be an order of magnitude more powerful. That supercomputer may be the center's last big deployment prior to the exascale era. Read more…
