World’s fastest supercomputer will be built by AMD and Cray for US

World’s fastest supercomputer will be built by AMD and Cray for US | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
To give an idea of the scale of this sort of machine, AMD says Frontier will have as much processing power as the next 160 fastest supercomputers combined. It’ll be able to handle an astonishing amount of data, with a bandwidth 24,000,000 times greater than the average home internet connection, capable of processing 100,000 HD movies in a second. It’ll also have a correspondingly huge footprint, taking up 7,300 square feet of space (roughly equivalent to two basketball courts) and containing 90 miles of cabling.
Al Cannistra's insight:

I looked this up…  “Voyager's computer was capable of 575 trillion calculations per NANOSECOND” (one billionth of a second) and here we are with 1.5 exaFlops (or a billion billion (i.e. a quintillion) calculations per SECOND)…  if I got my flops right here, then we have more work to do….   Even so, this one is said to be able to process 100,000 HD movies – per second….  That’s pretty fast!

The U.S. Will Get the World's First Exascale Computer in 2021 | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
The most powerful computer, dozens of times faster than any other computer in the world, will be built just outside Chicago.
Al Cannistra's insight:

a million times faster than the one i have now - i want one!
