The U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) said on Friday the country reclaimed the world's most powerful supercomputer. According to Tech Crunch, the computer will feature 4,608 compute servers, 22 IBMPower9 chips andsix Nvidia Tesla V100 GPUs each. The system will provide eight times the processing power as Oak Ridge's existing Titansupercomputer, as well as 60 percent more than the Chinese machine that has so far held the world record for speed.
Although the United States is touting Summit as the world's fastest supercomputer, the official rankings won't be out until later this month, when the organizers behind the Top500 list update the index. Join us in Lisbon on December 4-6 to meet with fellow experts as we define the future of next-gen communications and how to make it profitable.
Summit will be used for machine and deep learning, as well as research into clean energy, advanced materials, neutrons and nuclear science.
Despite its long history of cutting edge computing, the U.S. has in recent years been repeatedly surpassed by China: China now boasts the two fastest supercomputers in the world (Sunway TaihuLight and Tianhe-2).
Britain's richest man offers Abramovich £2bn for Chelsea The 65-year-old, who grew up in a council house in Failsworth, Lancashire, was knighted in the Queen's Birthday Honours List. It means there's been speculation that Abramovich could up sticks after buying Chelsea for £140million in 2003.
With the capability to do 200 quadrillion calculations per second, the Summitsupercomputer unseated the competition to grab first place.
"Summit will empower scientists to address a wide range of new challenges, accelerate discovery, spur innovation, and above all, benefit the American people", he said. "Today's Summit also gives us confidence we can deliver on a fully capable exascale computing resource by the year 2021". The supercomputer - named Summit - was designed by IBM and was unveiled at the DoE's Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
"There are things this computer does that I can't explain, but what I can explain is that there are people's lives out there that can be changed, maybe a loved one with a bad disease", he added.
"Summit takes GPU accelerated computing to the next level, with more computing power, morememory, an enormous high-performance file system, and fast data paths to tie it all together", said James Hack, director of ORNL's National Center for Computational Sciences. Scientists intend to use the Summit to search for possible links between genes and cancer, as well as for climatemodeling to increase the accuracy of weather forecasts.
Even more important, having access to such computing power has real worldwide consequences, which is why there is constant competition to make bigger and better supercomputers in China, Taiwan, Japan, India, the United States, and Europe. That means researchers will be able to get more accurate results faster.
Authorities have beefed up security around the hotels where Trump and Kim (Saint Regis) will be staying in central Singapore . But last month, Trump abruptly cancelled the Singapore summit, citing the "tremendous anger and open hostility" by Pyongyang.
