Million-Core Calculation Sets New Supercomputer Record (Wired UK)

Submitted by on January 29, 2013 – 2:46 pm

Technology Trend – At Stanford University in Northern California, USA, researchers just tapped into the world’s largest supercomputer and ran an application that crunched information across more than one million processor cores. Joseph Nichols and his team are the first to run live code on the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories’ Sequoia IBM Bluegene/Q supercomputer, a machine that spans over 1.5 million cores in total. The team used just over one million of those cores to simulate the amount of noise produced by an experimental jet engine, apparently setting a supercomputer record in the process. … Read more
