Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Komrade Klark, Jul 21, 2006.

  1. Cray has signed a contract with the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak
    Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to provide the first petaflops-speed
    (1,000 trillion floating-point operations per second) supercomputer.
    ORNL's Cray XT3™ supercomputer will undergo several upgrades beginning
    this year, and in 2008 ORNL is expected to install a next-generation
    Cray supercomputer. This system, currently code-named 'Baker,' is
    designed to deliver peak performance of one petaflops, making it roughly
    three times faster than any existing computer in the world.
