NVIDIA GPUs to Power New Berkeley National Lab Supercomputer

NVIDIA GPUs will power a next-generation supercomputer at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, announced today by U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry and supercomputer manufacturer Cray. Perlmutter, a pre-exascale system coming in 2020 to the DOE’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), will feature NVIDIA Tesla GPUs. The system is expected to deliver three times the computational power currently available on the Cori supercomputer at NERSC. Tesla GPUs provide universal acceleration for scientific computing, AI and machine learning applications, reducing the time it takes to make groundbreaking discoveries. Research organizations large and small are recognizing this potential by turning to GPUs for next-generation supercomputers.
