MORGANTOWN, WV – U.S. Energy Secretary Moniz dedicated a new supercomputer — one of the world’s fastest and most energy efficient—at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) on July 29, 2013. The high-performance computer for energy and the environment is not only one of the top 100 supercomputers in the world, but it is also one of the most energy efficient for its size.
The supercomputer is a 503 TFlops (trillion floating-point operations per second) computer that enables researchers to apply complex model simulations for advanced energy and environmental technology development. This is a unique tool tailored for engineering calculations in support of fossil energy research.
Moments ago NVIDIA unleashed news that it would be acquiring the Portland Group International (PGI), which has been a standby in the HPC market for Fortran and C compiler tools.
This week we were on hand for Intel’s “Rearchitecting the Datacenter” event, which offered a glimpse into how the company imagines its future path along both low power and high performance server routes.
