Intel and HP to build world's most efficient supercomputer

Sophie Curtis | Sept. 12, 2012
HP and Intel have teamed up to design and build a new supercomputing system for the US Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), which promises to be one of the most efficient installations in the world.

"Supercomputing is very much a market where innovation comes from the top and trickles down," said Erich Strohmaier, head of the Future Technology Group at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL).

"The new stuff, as soon as we have confidence that it works, it's going to get introduced in a very large system. That's why the large systems have higher efficiency than the small systems," he added.
