back to article Singapore goes Cray-cray in the best way, picks HPE for new 10 PFLOPS super 'puter

Singapore has picked Hewlett Packard Enterprises to build a new S$40m ($30m) supercomputer for its petascale National Supercomputing Center (NSCC). NSCC supports high performance computing for research institutes, universities, government agencies, and companies. The new supercomputer is funded as part of a $200m investment by …

    But can it run Crysis?

    look, someone had to say it

      It will probably run Crysis and Doom at the same time just from the generated heat. And planet nine, a black hole, will appear, just as you see the electricity bill.

      No, it's been built to run Autonomy so they can use its results to get their money back.

    But does it use artificial blood…

    …to cool it? Like the Crays of old did.

    I think that’s a good marker of a REAL MAN’s super computer

    The latest Super Computer stuff coming out of HPE has liquid cooling so you plumb it into your facility's chilled water supply.

    Maybe a hot-tub or swimming pool is on the cards as well.......

    An to think JUST ONE of our GaAs combined-CPU/GPU/DSP super-chips is 19.2 PetaFLOPS sustained at a full 128-bits wide for Floating Points, Fixed Points, Integers plus RGBA, YCbCrA and HSLA pixels !!!

    We still win!

    meh.

    We almost ready to go fully public with our fancy super-chips, Megawatt battery systems and non-ICE-based / Non-Turbine-based flight propulsion systems!
