The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) has revealed plans to deploy a cutting-edge petascale supercomputer courtesy of a $ 27.5 million dollar NSF award. Built by Dell, the system will consist of 2 petaflops of Sandy Bridge-EP processors accelerated by an additional 8 petaflops of Intel’s Many Integrated Core (MIC) coprocessors. The machine is scheduled to boot up in late 2012 and be ready for production in January 2013.
Cray announced that the National Agency of Meteorology and Environmental Monitoring (NAMEM) in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia has ordered a Cray XE6m supercomputer.
Appro today announced that the Appro Xtreme-X Supercomputer based on the future Intel Xeon processor E5 Family is selected by the Center for Computational Sciences at the University of Tsukuba.
Forge – a 153 teraflop supercomputer – is now available at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications for use by scientists and engineers across the country.
The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) as a premier institute working on climate change issues has acquired the latest state-of-the-art supercomputer from WIPRO, to address the gaps and develop a better understanding of climate variability and climate change at different spatial and temporal scales.
In the past year, Intel has launched

Meeting these challenges will require a modular, cluster-based design that is both scalable and resilient, according to Prof. Lippert. He noted that the JUROPA supercomputer at his center in Jülich, currently the14th fastest computer in the world, consists of a cluster of about 15,000 processor cores. He predicted that a future exa-scale systems could be comprised of as many as 10 million cores – a major challenge in terms of power consumption and data communication amongst all the cores.
To achieve all of this, Intel has invested in collaborations with institutions that specialize in high performance computing. Three Intel labs, all members of the
At the same time, researchers are hard work developing technologies for the future many-core microprocessors that will one day be at the heart of these clusters. For more on that – see
