Meet Mira, the world's fifth fastest supercomputer
LEMONT – When Argonne National Laboratory held a dedication for its new supercomputer on July 1, it was the culmination of almost 10 years of work.
Mira, the fifth fastest supercomputer in the world, is an IBM Blue Gene/Q system consisting of 48 racks of computers and 786,432 processors. It has 768 terabytes of memory and is capable of 10 quadrillion calculations per second.
"People are very excited about it," said Rick Stevens, Argonne's associate laboratory director for computing, environment and life sciences. "It's a new great resource for computational science. You can do things that you just couldn't do before. If you are an artist, it's like having a giant canvas."
