New navy military research supercomputer will have peak performance of more than 10 petaflops

Packing 12.8 petaflops would qualify the supercomputer to be one the top 25 most powerful computers. Navy won’t finish installation until 2021.

STENNIS SPACE CENTER, Miss. – Officials of the U.S. Navy Department of Defense Supercomputing Resource Center (DSRC) at Stennis Space Center, Miss., has announced plans to install a supercomputer with a peak performance of more than 10 petaflops.

The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

Engineers from Cray will build the supercomputer on the company’s Shasta platform, and the research supercomputer will come packing AMD Epyc CPUs and Nvidia Volta V100 GPUs.

Packing 12.8 petaflops would qualify the supercomputer to be one the top 25 most powerful computers. However, the Navy won’t finish installation for this supercomputer until 2021, so it’s ranking may end up being lower by then.

The new Cray supercomputer for military work will feature 290,304 AMD Epyc 7002-series processor cores, 112 Nvidia Volta V100 GPUs, a 200 gigabit per second Cray Slingshot network interconnect, 590 terabytes of memory and 14 petabytes of usable storage.
