IBM, Intel, AMD, Cray, HPE and NVIDIA Have Been Awarded a Grant for Exaflop Supercomputer Development

The most effective supercomputer is launched in China today. The system, called Sunway TaihuLight, operates locally developed processors. The ultimate Sunway TaihuLight productivity is 125 petaflops. In 2020 China plans to generate the first system in the world with a capacity overcoming one exaflops. At present the USA stays behind, however American supercomputers’ energy performance is significantly higher.



The US Department of Energy has established a $258 million grant for cost effective exaflop supermachines construction. Six American companies (IBM, Intel, AMD, Cray, HPE and NVIDIA) won it. Now they are to create an architecture, able to consume 25–30 MW at one exaflop productiveness. Such a system’s deployment is to take place in 2021. Apart from funds committed, each member company of the Exascale Computing Project program will put up its own means, constituting around 40% of DOE’s funds. Thus, the project cost will increase to $430 mln. In return, developers …

Official Presentation of CPU Cooler Thermaltake BigTyp Revo

Thermaltake, a world-known producer of thermal solutions, chassis and PSU, has officially presented its new CPU cooler modification, codenamed BigTyp Revo. This model has already been introduced at Computex 2012 where it got a lot of encouraging reviews and good prospects for the sale campaign. BigTyp Revo is considered to be an efficient solution for the cooling down of the around-socket spacing due to the horizontal radiator localization. Thermaltake representatives underline that their new product is compatible with Intel (LGA775/1155/1156/1366/2011) and AMD (Socket AM2(+)/AM3(+)/FM1) platforms.



BigTyp Revo framework consists of a compact radiator, low-noise fan, five heat pipes and a set of aluminum plates. The new model has got an aluminum base and is furnished with five copper heat pipes (6 mm each). Each of the pipes directly 'gets in touch' with the CPU surface, providing an outstanding heat removal power. The top of the radiator accommodates 120 mm fan which can be …

Asus Comes Out with B85-Pro Gamer Motherboard

Thrifty enthusiasts willing to build up an efficient gaming system are given a chance to enjoy the privileges of a new motherboard from Asus: the B85-Pro Gamer. The model employs an affordable set of components, although it is highly competitive with more powerful solutions. This ATX board is based on Intel B85 Express chipset for Socket LGA1150 platform and supports Core i3/i5/i7, Celeron and Pentium (Haswell gen.) CPUs.



Asus B85-Pro Gamer comes with 4x DIMM slots that are ready to welcome up to 32 GB of DDR3-1600 MHz memory modules (two-channel). Storage section is represented by six SATA ports, four of which support 6 Gb/sec standard. Expansion of functional facilities might be realized due to three PCI slots, two PCI-e 2.0 x1, and two PCI-e x16 slots. The delivery of power supply is organized by means of 1x 24-contact socket and 1x 8-contact socket.


The hardware base also embraces network gigabit Intel I217V controller with an integrated GameFirst II technology; the …
