Tokyo Institute of Technology building 2.39 petaflop supercomputer with SSDs

Posted on Sunday, June 27 2010 @ 11:26:09 CEST by

Engadget reports the Tokyo Institute of Technology is building a next-gen Tsubame 2.0 supercomputer with multi-level storage architecture consisting of DRAM as well as SSDs:
This next-gen supercomputer will reportedly operate at 2.39 petaflops (that's a lot of flops!) and uses a new multilevel storage architecture consisting of DRAM as well as SSDs. Not only will this bad boy have thirty times the computing capacity of Tsubame 1.0 (due in part to its some 2,816 Intel Westmere microprocessors and 4,224 NVIDIA Tesla M2050 GPUs), its power draw should be some 1/25th of its predecessor's. If all goes according to plan, it should be in operation this fall, at a cost of ¥3.2 billion (approx $35.5 million).
