Workers start installing the world’s most powerful supercomputer
The Department of Energy has begun installing what will become the world’s most powerful supercomputer. Oak Ridge National Laboratory has finished upgrading the data center that will house Frontier, set to be the world’s first exascale system (capable of at least 10¹⁸ floating-point operations per second).
It is expected to be capable of a theoretical peak performance of more than 1.5 exaflops, consuming 29MW.
