Argonne to Install 180 Petaflop Aurora Supercomputer in 2018

In this episode, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the Aurora supercomputer coming to Argonne in 2018.
The U.S. Department of Energy announced a $200 million supercomputing investment coming to Argonne National Laboratory. As the third of three Coral supercomputer procurements, the deal will comprise an 8.5 Petaflop “Theta” system based on Knights Landing in 2016 and a much larger 180 Petaflop “Aurora” supercomputer in 2018. Intel will be the prime contractor on the deal, with sub-contractor Cray building the actual supercomputers.
