Exxact GPU cluster ranked in the TOP500 list of world's most powerful supercomputers

16 Dec 2015 Fremont - At the 2015 Supercomputing Conference in Austin, Texas, HPC and visualization provider Exxact Corporation announced its first ever ranking in the TOP500 list of the world's most powerful supercomputers. Codenamed the Yoda, the Exxact developed supercomputer was placed at no. 227 on the list featuring 7,920 cores, a Rmax value of 417.0 teraflops, and a Rpeak value of 831.0 teraflops.

The Yoda cluster is stationed in Washington D.C. at the Naval Research Laboratory where scientific and technological research is conducted for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. The supercomputer is comprised of seven separate 42U racks that contain 64x fully customized Exxact Quantum TXR410-768R 4U GPU computing systems. The entire cluster is connected by a one-to-one non-blocking FDR (56 GB/s) Infiniband network. It is equipped with 512 NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Black GPUs, totaling out to over 1.4 million CUDA cores. In addition, the Yoda cluster comprises of 128 Intel Xeon E5-2620v2 processors, and a staggering 8.32TB of memory.

"This marks the first year that an Exxact cluster has been placed on the highly regarded TOP500 list", stated Jason Chen, Vice-President of Exxact Corporation. "We are extremely excited to see that our innovative solution with the Naval Research Lab is receiving recognition and has been included with some of the top supercomputers in the world."
