The Department of Energy has announced that its Frontier supercomputer is now the world’s fastest. It’s been named the top supercomputer in the world by the Top500 list.
This is the first time in the history of the TOP500 that a supercomputer has broken the exaflop barrier. Exaflop means the number of math problems a computer can perform in a second. A true exaflop would be the equivalent to more than a million trillion computing operations in a second.
During its first test, Frontier reached 1.1 exaflops, or one quintillion calculations in a second. It has the potential to go even higher.
At its peak, Frontier has the potential to perform more than two exaflops. Researchers plan to leverage its power to simulate star explosions and subatomic particle properties. These computations could help researchers understand the universe and improve clean energy technologies.
While the supercomputer will be able to tackle complex problems in science and research, it will also be used to create more realistic climate models. It’s expected that Frontier will start operating by 2023.
Scientists are looking forward to using Frontier to tackle problems in fields as diverse as energy, biogeochemical cycles, and fusion energy. They hope to use its power to make a positive impact on national security and to better understand the universe.
With its AI machine architecture, Frontier will help researchers automate and analyze critical processes and deliver groundbreaking data science insights. Some of the important applications include mapping the brain, understanding biogeochemical cycles, and improving nanoscience materials.
