Horst Simon

Tiffany Trader, HPC Wire, Horst Simon on the HPC Slowdown, here. Not a bad talk. Need 100Tera FLOPs box to Find NIMo. Maybe see if China wants to try, first?

Even the CORAL announcement, the joint Collaboration of Oak Ridge, Argonne, and Lawrence Livermore, which is noteworthy for funding three 150-petaflops systems can be seen as a marker of slow-down. Horst says these machines would have had to be implemented already to put the US on track for a 2020 exascale timeline, yet they are still two-to-three years away.

top500, here. Look at the list ¬†Finding NIMo is probably good at a couple hundred TFLOPS. Let’s see if we can do this in Ptown proper. If Jamison could hack in his jammies on the local box, then maybe so can we. No problem doing this in China from the list – but that means crossing Route 1.
