Consumer-products giant Procter & Gamble (P&G) has turned to Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and America’s fastest supercomputer to simulate microscopic processes that can threaten product performance and stability.
When the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility replaced its Jaguar supercomputer with Titan, not only did it expand its computing speed tenfold, it also saved on the electric bill.
The OLCF’s Jack Wells was an invited speaker at the American Astronomical Society’s (AAS’s) Exascale Radio Astronomy conference from March 30 to April 4 in Monterrey, CA, where he detailed recent advances in computational astrophysics on Department of Energy supercomputing systems such as Titan.
The OLCF-organized series “Extreme Scale Supercomputing with the Titan Supercomputer,” chaired by Jack Wells, director of science, brought together Titan users in 24 conference sessions amounting to 540 minutes.
By adding a graphics processing unit (GPU) accelerator to the 16-core central processing unit (CPU) on each node, the OLCF substantially increased Titan’s computing capability, enabling INCITE researchers to reach unprecedented science achievements.
