Big Blue's Summit super sits, aptly, at the peak of official Top500 beast list


Re: shout out for storage?

In our supercomputing system, we have megabytes of SRAM (Static RAM) for each processing core ranging from 4, 16 and 64 megabytes up to as much as 4 gigabytes PER CORE! Since we developed a GaAs (Gallium Arsenide) on Sapphire Substrate 128-bits wide Super-CPU using our custom etching systems, we can make our chips ANY SIZE with dies as large as 200 mm across. The line traces are much larger than the 45 nm or smaller CMOS process sizes of most CPU/GPUprocessors, but what we lose in size, we make up for in speed since GaAs IS MUCH FASTER! It does however, require much wider circuit traces and higher operating power levels!

The majority of our system is created from a massive array of Vector Processors (also called an Array processor) which uses two techniques: SIMD (Single Instruction Multiple Data) and MIMD (Multiple Instructions, Multiple Data) to process an array of 128-bit Signed/UnSigned Integer or 128-bit Fixed Point/Floating point values IN PARALLEL synchronized to a master clock signal which is right now set at 20 GHz (YES! You read that correctly! 20 Gigahertz!)

Since each chip has a large array of 65536 by 65536 microcores with EACH CORE having an 11x11 128-bit value convolution filter sub-processor and standard integer/real number add, subtract, multiply, divide, root, powers, etc., we can process ENORMOUS amounts of data in real time. Since all cores have 128 LOCAL of teh 128-bits wide registers (i.e. simple storage locations located right beside the microcore), retrieval of inputs and outputs is speedy. Using a custom IPV6-like packet infrastructure we can also send data over fibre optic connections which are embedded directly onto each chip using UV (ultraviolet wavelengths) for speedy networking into the many Terabits+ range.

The entire system is immersed in a giant pool of non-conductive cooling fluid which has a closed-loop condensor and heat exchange system attached to a company swimming pool so we get nice sub-tropical water temps for swimming AND we get to cool our massive supercomputer very effectively!

On a technical basis, have have TESTED using various benchmarks our supercomputer system at a SUSTAINED 119 ExaFLOPS of 128-bit Floating Point Operations which BLOWS AWAY EVERY OTHER T-500 super COMBINED! Our system is 595 times MORE POWERFUL than Summit! Our DragonSlayer system is by far THE NUMBER ONE SUPERCOMPUTER IN THE WORLD - PERIOD !!!

We are located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and this system runs a MASSIVE electro-chemical simulation of human neural tissue for the purposes of creating a human-level (IQ-100) functional whole brain emulation. Evidently that part seems to be working rather well......
