Accelerated Computing Emerges as Booster Rocket Taking Us to Age of Exacale

Another supercomputing show, another performance record, courtesy this week of Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Summit system, the first to smash through the 100-petaflop barrier. But behind that headline at Frankfurt’s International Supercomputing show is a broader story about how the tectonic plates of the supercomputing world are shifting. As Moore’s Law continues to slow, accelerated Read article >
