The launch of the prototype exaflops supercomputer will allow researchers to test and optimize the key technologies.
In China work has begun prototype computers exaflops class, which belongs to the next generation of supercomputers.
A supercomputer capable of performing a trillion operations per second.
Exaflops supercomputer Shuguang is expected to be operational in the national supercomputing centres in Shanghai and Shenzhen.
In China, the development of prototypes of a new generation supercomputer is being done by three scientific organizations, including the national research center of parallel computer engineering and technology (NRCPC), the Sugon company and national University of defense technology.
Now all of these organizations completed the creation of a prototype supercomputer exaflops that was another step on the path to creating next-generation supercomputer in the country.
“The launch of the prototype exaflops supercomputer will allow researchers to test and optimise the key technology, and to eliminate obstacles to create the final version of the computational system,” – said a senior researcher of the Institute of computing technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Zhang Unican.
Another prototype exaflops supercomputer Tianhe-3 passed the acceptance tests on July 22. The appearance of its final version is expected in 2020. Two placeholder data mark another step of China towards building a supercomputer next generation.
