9th Irish Supercomputer List published


28 Nov 2017 Dublin - The 9th Irish Supercomputer List was released on Novmber 28, 2017 featuring two new world-class supercomputers. This is the first time that Ireland has four computers ranked on the TOP500 list of the fastest supercomputers on Earth.

These new supercomputers boost the Irish High Performance Computing capacity by nearly one third, up from 3.01 to 4.42 Pflop/s. Ireland has ranked on the TOP500 list 33 times over a history of 23 years with a total of 20 supercomputers. Over half of these rankings (19) and supercomputers (12) have been in the last 6 years, representing Ireland's increasing pace of High Performance Computing investment. The new entrants, from two undisclosed software and web services companies, feature at spots 423 and 454 on the 50th TOP500 Supercomputer List, with Linpack Rmax scores of 635 and 603 TFlop/s respectively.

The Irish Supercomputer List now ranks 30 machines - 2 new, 1 upgraded, with a total of more than 207,000 CPU cores and over 106,000 accelerator cores.
