Here is The fastest computer in the world goes online
Here is the fastest computer in the world. Brussels EU is now catching up in the race to beat America. United States up In Bologna, Italy, the fourth-fastest computer in the world will come online on Thursday. The supercomputer known as Leonardo is capable of computing that can reach 250 petaflops. This is equivalent to arithmetic operations of 250 trillion per second.
The third-fastest computer in the world was introduced by the LUMI in Kajaani, Finland, in June. The LUMI is a petaflop computer with 309 petaflops. Its supercomputer Marenostrum 5 in Barcelona, Spain is anticipated to finish in sixth or fifth position in the rankings and may follow in the spring of next year. “We are now a computer superpower,” claims a top EU official.
Germany’s most powerful computer known as the Juwels located at the Julich research center located in North Rhine-Westphalia is currently in 12th place in the world. The first exascale computing in Europe is set to be operational by the end of 2023. The next generation supercomputer, which is being developed under the known as Jupiter will be capable of over a million petaflops and could rise into number one. Its exascale counterpart Frontier located in California in the US California state California is currently the most powerful place, followed by Japanese supercomputer Fugaku. Jupiter is expected to be quicker than Frontier according to an EU official.
A billion euros for supercomputers
The European strategy appears to be working. In the year 2018 in 2018, the EU Commission and the Member States introduced the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHP JU) initiative. With a billion euros of funding, with half coming is from the EU budget and half of the budgets of the individual states, Europe should advance into the top 10 supercomputers.
Computing power from Jupiter, Leonardo, and Co. is available to European researchers, who are able to utilize it, for example, to perform complex long-term calculations of the global climate, or for medical research. In particular, supercomputers were employed to develop the corona vaccine. They are also essential in the field of artificial intelligence.
Access to computers is determined by prioritizations. The majority of the capacity is allocated to European projects while the remainder is distributed throughout the nation. The need for computing capacity in Europe is much higher than the available capacity, an EU official claimed. In 2024, a minimum of 3000 petaflops are expected to be accessible across Europe.
The components of European supercomputers originate from the US maker Hewlett Packard Enterprise or the French company Atos. The next leap in technology is already happening in the same period when in October the EU Commission announced that quantum computers will be operational in six sites in the second quarter of 2023.
They would be part of the supercomputer network to enhance the computing power. Software and hardware are both directly from the EU. Julich is also part of this group.
