||Cray wins contract from ORNL for Titan supercomputer
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory has awarded a contract to Cray Inc. to increase the Jaguar supercomputer’s science impact and energy efficiency. The upgrade, which will provide advanced capabilities in modeling and simulation, will transform the DOE Office of Science-supported Cray XT5 system, currently capable of 2.3 million billion calculations per second, into a Cray XK6 system with a peak speed between 10 and 20 petaflops.
The new system will employ the latest AMD Opteron central processing units as well as NVIDIA Tesla graphics processing units. The last phase of the upgrade is expected to be completed in late 2012. The system, which will be known as Titan, will be ready for users in early 2013. ORNL is managed by UT-Battelle for the Office of Science.
