Supercomputer with 11 PFLOPS performance will be used 7-nanometer AMD EPYC processors

This week, the French company Atos signed a contract with the Finnish Science Center CSC to supply a new supercomputer.

The project, which is allocated 37 million euros, will increase the computing resources available to Finnish scientists five times.

The deployment of the system is planned to be completed in one and a half years in two stages. At the first stage, the Atos BullSequana X400 cluster will be installed on Intel Xeon Cascade Lake Air Cooling processors. Its performance will be 2 PFLOPS.

Also, in the first stage, it is planned to deploy a cluster of 320 Nvidia V100 accelerators (four on the computing node). Its peak performance will be 2.5 PFLOPS. The first stage should be completed in the summer of 2019.

At the second stage, which should be completed in the spring of 2020, Atos will install in Finland a supercomputer BullSequana XH2000 with liquid cooling, the configuration of which will include 7-nanometer processors AMD EPYC (Rome).

The total number of processor cores will be 200,000, and peak performance is projected to be equal to 6.4 PFLOPS. Ultimately, the performance of a supercomputer should reach 11 PFLOPS.
