ORNL’s Frontier First to Break the Exaflop Ceiling
May 30, 2022

The 59th edition of the TOP500 revealed the Frontier system to be the first true exascale machine with an HPL score of 1.102 Exaflop/s.

The No. 1 spot is now held by the Frontier system at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in the US. Based on the latest HPE Cray EX235a architecture and equipped with AMD EPYC 64C 2GHz processors, the system has 8,730,112 total cores, a power efficiency rating of 52.23 gigaflops/watt, and relies on gigabit ethernet for data transfer.


Still waiting for Exascale: Japan's Fugaku outperforms all competition once again
Nov. 15, 2021

FRANKFURT, Germany; BERKELEY, Calif.; and KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— The 58th annual edition of the TOP500 saw little change in the Top10. The Microsoft Azure system called Voyager-EUS2 was the only machine to shake up the top spots, claiming No. 10. Based on an AMD EPYC processor with 48 cores and 2.45GHz working together with an NVIDIA A100 GPU and 80 GB of memory, Voyager-EUS2 also utilizes a Mellanox HDR Infiniband for data transfer. 


The List

11/2022 Highlights

  • The Frontier system at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennessee, USA remains the No. 1 system on the TOP500 and is still the only system reported with an HPL performance exceeding one Exaflop/s. Frontier brought the pole position back to the USA on the June listing with an HPL score of 1.102 Exaflop/s.
  • The LUMI system at EuroHPC/CSC in Finland entered the list last June at No. 3. It is again listed as No. 3 but only thanks to an upgrade of the system, which doubled its size. With its increased HPL score of 309 Pflop/s it remains the largest system in Europe.
  • The only new machine to grace the top of the list was the No. 4 Leonardo system at EuroHPC/CINECA in Bologna, Italy. The machine achieved an HPL score of .174 EFlop/s with 1,463,616 cores.
