To maintain its lead in supercomputing, the United States has budgeted over $500 million to build the first "exascale" computer in the world in 2021.
The new system, dubbed Aurora, will be capable of completing at least one exaflop, or a billion billion calculations per second. The contract for the exascale computer is valued at more than $500 million. The Aurora system will allow Intel to claim temporary bragging rights over IBM's Power processor, which now runs the two most powerful supercomputers on the Top 500 list. However, the new system will use components created by Intel's 3D packaging technology, which can produce leaner, more power-efficient chips.
Aurora was featured in a New York Times story a few hours ago, which quoted Raja Koduri (SVP of Intel's core and visual computing group) as proclaiming "We want to make exascale computing available to everyone". Several countries are in a race to claim they have the fastest computer in the world. And reportedly, the Chinese government has been prototyping an exascale computer, which could end up online in 2020.
