The Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) has installed the first module of JUWELS, a supercomputer that will succeed JUQEEN as the center’s premier HPC system and pave the way for future exascale machines.
For the first time in five years, Cray will be offering supercomputers equipped with AMD chips. On Wednesday the company announced it has added support for EPYC 7000 processors in its CS500 product line.
A trio of UK universities will install a set of HPE Apollo 70 clusters powered by Cavium’s ThunderX2 ARM processors. The effort is part of a three-year project, known as Catalyst UK, which is evaluating the potential of ARM-based supercomputing.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) has announced a Request for Proposals (RFP) to develop at least two new exascale supercomputers for the DOE at a cost of up to $1.8 billion. The RFP was issued under the moniker of CORAL-2, representing the second phase of procurements for exascale machinery for Oak Ridge, Argonne, and Lawrence Livermore national labs.
