Default Cray releases new supercomputer

Cray announced a XC30 supercomputer capable of high-performance computing (HPC) workloads of more than 100 petaflops which is pretty floppy considering it relies on Intel Xeon processors and Aries interconnect chipset technology.

Originally dubbed "Cascade," the system uses Cray's integrated software environment and processors from the Intel Xeon E5-2600 family, with the ability to scale up to one million cores.

Cray claims that the XC30s can use a wide variety of processor types and it is looking at Intel's Xeon Phi and Nvidia Tesla GPUs based on the Kepler GPU.

According to Slashdot, Cray has signed up a few supercomputer centers for the XC30. These include the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) in Lugano, Switzerland, and the Academic Center for Computing and Media Studies (ACCMS) at Kyoto University.

The systems should be available in the first quarter of 2013.

There is lots of competition in the supercomputer market at the moment. Cray only built 5.4 percent of the systems on the Top500 list, compared to IBM with 42.6 percent and Hewlett-Packard with 27.6 percent.
