Research Chip' is an amazing achievement for Intel and we are very excited about showcasing it the Middle East for the first time."
The speed leaves in the dust the previous record of 7.226 teraflops
, logged by the ASCI White-Pacific System supercomputer of the United States.
quest is fueled by the massive (gigabuck-level) High Performance Computing and Communications Program (HPCC, 1992) budget and DARPA's military-like, tactical focus on teraflops
and massive parallelism with greater than 1,000 processing elements.
HPE's Spaceborne Computer is the first high-performance commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) computer system to run one teraFLOP
at the International Space Station," he said.
The new console boasts of 6 teraflops
of graphical power.
Under the agreement, financial details of which were not available, IBM will work with local business partner, DATALAN, to provide a 96 teraflop
supercomputer based on IBM's Power 775 and 755 systems and DS5300 storage.
According to the company, NVIDIA Tesla-based GPUs feature up to 240 cores and 1 teraflop
of processing power per processing GPU.
: One teraflop
is one trillion floating-point operations per second.
SGI Prism XL is designed for accelerator-based high performance computing, enabling users to scale to tens of petaflops or large teraflop
To handle these large models, Sandia National Laboratory in 1997 obtained the first teraflop
computer - that is, one that performs more than a trillion floating point operations per second.
SiCortex, the first company to engineer a Linux cluster from the silicon up, is dedicated to the spread of open teraflop
computing to a wide variety of users by providing "Teraflops
from Milliwatts." Founded in 2003 by a respected team of computer industry executives, the company has received a total of $42 million in funding from Chevron Technology Ventures, Flagship Ventures, JK&B Capital, Polaris Venture Partners and Prism VentureWorks.
It comes with a custom eight-core CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, a 6 teraflop
GPU, 326GB/s memory bandwidth, 12GB of GDDR RAM and 1TB of HDD storage.
