Lawrence Livermore to Surpass 2 Exaflows with AMD Compute

March 4, 2020 Timothy Prickett Morgan

As reported by NEXTPLATFORM, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, one of the main supercomputer and scientific research facilities operated by the Department of Energy, is keenly interested in bang for the buck. And with some of the world’s most perplexing physical and chemical simulation problems, Lawrence Livermore has to do whatever it can to get as much performance as it can.

And that, as they inferred when some of the details of the future “El Capitan” supercomputer being built by Cray (now part of Hewlett Packard Enterprise) were unveiled last August, is why they believed that AMD would ultimately be the supplier of both CPU and GPU motors for this system.
