Jensen Huang’s Speech at Unveiling of Energy Department’s Summit Supercomputer

Secretary Perry, Governor Haslam, Senator Alexander, Director Zacharia, Ginnie, John, and the IBM team, and all of the amazing researchers of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, it’s a great pleasure to be here today to inaugurate the Summit supercomputer. Summit is a remarkable machine. The fastest computer ever made. Every statistic of Summit is amazing. It has 200 petaflops of high-precision computation — many times faster than the world’s fastest. And because of a new invention we call the Volta Tensor Core GPU, it also does multi-precision mathematics and pumps out 3 quintillion operations per second — 3 exaops. Exa is a big number — the universe is only half an exa-seconds old.
