Booked for conveyance to Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in 2021, the Frontier supercomputer guarantees an exhibition of more prominent than 1.5 exaflops (quicker than the present lineup of petaflop-level machines).
The framework, in light of Cray’s new Shasta design and Slingshot interconnect, will highlight superior AMD innovation—and a sticker price of more than $600 million.
“Boondocks’ record-breaking execution will guarantee our nation’s capacity to lead the world in science that improves the lives and monetary thriving everything being equal and the whole world,” U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said in an announcement.
By comprehending computations up to multiple times quicker than the present top supercomputers, the cutting edge machine will empower achievements in logical revelation, vitality confirmation, financial aggressiveness, and national security, as indicated by the DOE.
Following the main AI framework Summit, sent at ORNL in 2018, Frontier additionally gives new advances to profound learning, AI, and information examination for everything from assembling to human wellbeing.
