Aurora Supercomputer Achieves Exascale Capacity


The supercomputer is now second only to AMD's Frontier system.

Intel has announced that the Aurora supercomputer has broken the exascale barrier at 1.012 exaflops and “is the fastest AI system in the world dedicated to AI for open science,” achieving 10.6 AI exaflops.

The supercomputer, built in collaboration with Argonne National Laboratory and HPE, “uses Intel’s latest CPU and GPU hardware, with 21,248 Sapphire Rapids Xeon CPUs and 63,744 Ponte Vecchio GPUs. When it's fully operational later this year, Intel believes the system will eventually be capable of crossing the 2-exaflop barrier,” reports Josh Norem.

The current capability puts the Aurora system in second place on the latest TOP500 list, released at ISC High Performance 2024, with AMD's Frontier system retaining the top spot.
