Titan: CPU and GPU combine for a supercomputer has 20 petaflops

Technology – the course of the 20 pé taflops approaches. In addition to IBM, CRAY will also deliver him, in the United States, for a coû T d’ approximately 100 million dollars, an able supercomputer d' to offer a performance of point dé passing 20 petaflops.

The United States counts dA©velopper well the capacitA©s calculation of their supercomputers. IBM has dA©jA  annoncA© qua?? with the Sequoia project, it would deliver a machine of 20 pA©taflops to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (US).

But this last will not be the only one has  accroA®tre its performances in matiA¨re of calculation. Will the national laboratory amA©ricain D `Oak Ridge thus be equipped da?? a new supercomputer baptisA© Titan. It its?? da will act?? does an extension of its have?? of does manufacturer CRAY have?? , currently 3rd with the classification with 1,75 pA©taflop.

Titan be able D `to offer a performance of point dA©passant 20 petaflops, Ca?? is-HAVe – to say has “twice faster and three times more autonomous than the supercomputer have  this day has”, has  to know of the institute avancA© of computer sciences of Kobe in Japan.

\#?? structure retained for Titan thus consists has  to associate graphics processors, of Nvidia Tesla and CPU. Among the supercomputers in the world, three combine dA©jA  CPU and GPU.

It its?? acts of Chinese Tianhe-1A (2,56 pflop/s), Nebulae (1,27 pflop/s) and of Japanese Tsubame 2. 0 (1,19 pflop/s). ConcrA¨tement, for Titan, they are 18. 000 GPU Tesla of new gA©nA©ration which have? tre installA©s in 2012.

new the systA¨me would have? tre livrA© in its final version with the laboratory D `Oak Ridge in 2013, and coA” for the third time prA¨s of 100 million dollars. The United States, concurrencA©s by China, is not the only ones has  floor on?? future of intensive calculation.

In 2010, France thus brought into service, the supercomputer of the ECA dotA© D `1,05 pA©taflop/s of computing power. The ECA had A©galement levA© the veil has  this occasion on its ambitions in this sector, prA©voyant Tera 1000.

This last should cross the course of the 30 in theory pA©taflops (either an increase da?? a factor 30). Next A©tape will be that of calculation exaflopic has?? that is to say a billion billion da?? opA©rations a second.

the first supercomputer franA§ais da?? does a exaflopic computing power, have to be born in 2019 to him has?? if?? Technological A©volution and the budgets allouA©s allow it.
