Trisymbiotic IP, a small start-up, announces U.S. Patent 10,020,436 which surpasses in facilities efficiency the fastest supercomputers from the U.S. and China

24 Oct 2018 Laredo - Inventor Matteo Gravina patents three inventions for high performance computing and data centre industries. With over 200 GFLOPs per watt claimed by the patent portfolio.

The marketplace for data centres has a metric for power efficiency. The power usage effectiveness of 1.0 is the total amount of energy delivered to the servers equal to the total power use by the facility. PUE is the ratio of the total amount of power use by a facility to the energy delivered to the servers and rack equipment. According to the portfolio patent specifications, a negative power usage effectiveness is achievable, in this case, electrical power is extracted at a higher level than what is introduced to power the servers:

  • 200 billion floating point operations per second per watt
  • Negative power usage effectiveness
  • Exascale computing at 5 MW
  • Space 5.0
At the concept stage, Trisymbiotic IP has a three patent portfolio held by the inventor Matteo Gravina. A report detailing the inventions, and how to use them is online. Besides the implementation, the intellectual property portfolio entails consequences as well as opportunities.
