And they both come online in 2021, so "first" is just semantics. Would be funny after this announcement that with Intel's current track record for not being able to get 10nm online if they end up falling behind to 2022.

[Tom's Hardware] Intel's Xe Graphics Architecture to Power World's First Exascale Supercomputer

Source: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/in...ics,38851.html

Quote:
More importantly, the system leverages Intel's Xe graphics architecture. In its announcement, Intel said Xe will be used for compute functions, meaning it will be primarily used for AI computing.

Neither Intel nor the DOE would comment on what GPU form factor will make an appearance in the new supercomputer, but logically we could expect these to be Intel's discrete graphics cards.

Intel previously disclosed that it would split the Xe graphics solutions into two distinct architectures, with both integrated and discrete graphics cards for the consumer market (client) and discrete cards for the data center. Intel recently disclosed that the cards would come wielding the 10nm process and arrive in 2020, which is in line with its previous projections. Intel says its Xe graphics solutions will range from teraFLOPS to petaFLOPS of performance, but the company hasn't disclosed how many Xe graphics cards the Aurora supercomputer will use.

Intel's recent announcement that it had started a new program to launch graphics cards for both gaming and enterprise markets (purportedly code-named Arctic Sound) was shocking because Nvidia and AMD have been the primary two discrete GPU producers for the last 20 years. But it's a critically important strategic move for Intel.

The rise of GPUs in the supercomputing space is explosive. In 2008, not one supercomputer used GPUs for computation, instead relying on the tried-and-true CPU, but now 80 percent of compute power in the top 500 supercomputers comes from GPUs. As such, Xe graphics in the Aurora supercomputer signifies a major marketing win for Intel, as it requires unseating Nvidia's graphics cards that are typically the go-to solution for AI processing in the high-performance computing (HPC) market.

I wonder if Intel is giving them a killer deal on there GPU to help promote it or if they are shaping up to just be that dang good.

So now it's over a billion added to debt to be paid by people only so that one branch of a government can have two supercomputers to play chess, I'm sorry solitaire. No wonder US is in such a huge debt.

From the article:

Quote:
DoE Secretary Rick Perry. “Aurora and the next generation of exascale supercomputers will apply HPC and AI technologies to areas such as cancer research, climate modeling, and veterans’ health treatments. The innovative advancements that will be made with exascale will have an incredibly significant impact on our society.”

people forget that these super computers spend a good amount of time working on the world's problems.

and the other time calculating the best way to blow up the world's problems.
