WSJ: Supercomputer Ranking Offers Clues About Chips, China
Jack Dongarra, distinguished professor in the electrical engineering and computer science department, was written about in the Wall Street Journal. Dongarra’s Top500 list which ranks the world’s fastest supercomputers was released this week listing Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Titan at the top. “Titan’s ascendance nevertheless is a milestone for efforts to popularize system designs that use two varieties of chips to get computing work done faster,” wrote the author about Titan’s technology. Dongarra compiles the list with Hans Meuer of the University of Mannheim, Germany and Erich Strohmaier and Horst Simon of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
