[TH]Regaining America's Supercomputing Supremacy With The Summit Supercomputer

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
The inside of these nodes is pretty sick -- two Power9 processors and six Volta GV100's, all watercooled. The pics are sheer hardware porn. This system should put the US back on top in the supercomputer race.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory's new Summit supercomputer, projected to be the fastest in the world, should rocket the U.S. back into the lead over China on the Top500 list of fastest supercomputers. At SuperComputing 2017, IBM demoed its Power Systems AC922 server nodes that serve as the backbone of the Summit supercomputer.

Summit will come online in 2018 with China's 93 PetaFLOPS Sunway TaihuLight, the world's fastest supercomputer, in its sights.

Summit will more than double Sunway's performance with ~200 PetaFLOPS. That's quite the achievement, considering the Sunway TaihuLight is ~60 PetaFLOPS ahead of the world's second-fastest supercomputer.

With the current rate of advancement we should have a GPU with equal capabilities within the next 30 years.

Hopefully all the doom and gloom in the curret climate can get turned around.

Is there enough potential left in Silicon to get another 14 multiplications of rendering power?

Interesting that they went full water-cooling considering the extra energy needed to run such a system. I wonder where they get piped to? Also, can you imagine the disaster if one of the pipes started leaking?

It can probably run 4k PUBG at atleast medium.

It's easier to get rid of the heat this way in a datacenter. Cooling of a datacenter actual takes a lot of power.
Having the heated fluid you could even try to regain some of the expended energy but the returns for these fairly low temperature fluids is low.

Thanks, it seems counterintuitive since WC takes more energy in a normal PC. Does it get piped into a single large heat exchanger?

I thought the same thing. Can you imagine the $ value of the monthly power bill? lol

There are many data centers that are watercooled, but they arte mostly ocean based centers for skirting country laws. They build them out of a bunch of freighter shipping containers that are cut out to make big rooms, then pump sea water in to cool things and dump the water back out into the ocean after it has run through the cooling loop. A great way to do cooling when you have limited electrical supply and abundant water supply, even if it is salt water.


With the power density of modern chips, we are going to be seeing a lot more water cooling in land based data centers

How much more computing power is that than the crypto mining "botnet"?

Doesn't matter who got the biggest, it's what you do with it.

This is going to be used for Crypto Currency mining right?
