Recently, according to media reports,IBM is working with US officials to provide the world's fastest supercomputer computing powerTo help researchers curb novel coronavirus epidemics.
Participated in the research is IBM summit supercomputer system, which won the first place in the top 500 supercomputer in June 2018,By 2019, it is still the fastest supercomputer in the world.
The Summit hypercomputing system that let the United States regain world number one consists of 4608 computing servers, each containing two 22-core Power9 processors (IBM production) and six Tesla V100 graphics processing unit accelerators (NVIDIA production). Summit also has more than 10 PB of memory with fast, high bandwidth paths for efficient data transmission.Floating point computing power can reach up to 2 billion times per second (200 PFlops).
Summit will help NASA、 MIT, Lensler Institute of Technology, LawrenceDevelop predictive models, analyze disease progression, and model new potential therapies or potential vaccines.
The United States is one of the countries with the most serious epidemic situation in the world. In the past 24 hours, 8028 people have been confirmed, 33833 people have been confirmed and 428 people have died.
