Nation's supercomputer systems top list

  • China fails to wrest supercomputer crown from US as trade and tech tensions continue to swirl

The computer's 31.7 petaflops are equivalent to approximately 170,000 laptops combined.

Total's Pangea III is based on IBM's Power9 CPUs and will be used to improve and accelerate the energy company's oil and gas exploration missions, which start with crunching massive amounts of seismic data and use modeled seismic images to spot resource locations. Early past year, soon after HPE announced that one of its systems used by BP was the most powerful commercial supercomputer, Italian energy company Eni took the top spot for commercial supercomputing with an 18.6 petaflops (peak) cluster, called HPC4, also built by HPE - and, like IBM's Power9 architecture, also incorporating Nvidia GPUs.

Pangea III's capacity adds to its predecessors (Pangea I and II) and is now ranked the number 1 most powerful supercomputer in the industry, and the 11th most powerful computer globally, in public or private hands. Because IBM POWER9 is optimized to take advantage of attached accelerators, it is created to help Total not only improve performance but also improve energy efficiency in their HPC workloads.

Petaflops is a measurement of computing power.

Total did not say how much it had invested in the new supercomputer. Geoscientists then use these images to identify where oil and gas resources lie.

SOCIAL : Mouvement social à Radio France: 90% des journalistes en grève
Plusieurs centaines de personnes étaient réunies à la mi-journée dans la Maison ronde pour une assemblée générale. Jeudi 13 juin, une réunion de "méthode" a échoué, les syndicats quittant la réunion.

As IBM targets its Power9 architecture at more commercial customers, David Turek, the company's VP of exascale systems, asserted that "Pangea III demonstrates that IBM Power Systems are not just for the large government or research organizations".

It would also help to locate more reliably hydrocarbons below ground, which is useful in complex environments where it is exploring for oil trapped under salt, such as Brazil, the Gulf of Mexico, Angola and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Asset Valuation and Selectivity - through early assessment of the value of exploration acreage and asset opportunities, Total will enhance selectivity in their new ventures. "It also gives them room to explore the role IBM Power Systems can play against their most data-intensive workloads like hybrid could and AI".

The supercomputer is the most powerful computer of its kind within the industry according to the TOP500 table, Reuters reported.

Lenovo tops the rankings as the main high-performance computing vendor in the latest Top500 study.
