Building on the successes of the Stampede1 supercomputer, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) has rolled out its next-generation HPC system, Stampede2. Over the course of 2017, Stampede2 will undergo further optimization phases with the support of a $30 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). With the latest Xeon and Skylake processors, and enhanced networking provided by the Omni-Path architecture, the new flagship system is expected to deliver approximately 18 petaflops, nearly doubling Stampede1’s performance.
Stampede2 continues Stampede1’s mission: enabling thousands of scientists and researchers across the United States to deliver breakthrough scientific discoveries in science, engineering, artificial …Read more
