Cray has shown off its fastest supercomputer yet, which puts a petaflop of computing power in a single cabinet. The company also says it is adding machine-learning capabilities across its systems.
The XC50 supercomputer is designed for the most demanding high-performance computing (HPC) users, according to Cray. It said supercomputing applications are evolving to include more deep-learning algorithms, and as a result the uses of the GPUs in its systems are increasingly “enabling our customers to use new analytics techniques to gain insight from increasingly large and complex data”.
