Schweidel of Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. Read more →

Meet Summit, world’s most powerful, smartest scientific supercomputer

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory on June 8 unveiled Summit as the world’s most powerful and smartest scientific supercomputer. With a peak performance of 200,000 trillion calculations per second – or 200 petaflops – Summit will be eight times more powerful than ORNL’s previous top-ranked system, Titan. For certain scientific applications, Summit will also be capable of more than three billion billion mixed precision calculations per second, or 3.3 exaops. Read more →
