Interview: Buddy Bland on How the #1 Titan Supercomputer will Power Science

In this video, Buddy Bland from Oak Ridge National Laboratory describes the new Titan supercomputer, which just came in at #1 on the TOP500. As a hybrid system, Titan derived 100 percent of its LINPACK performance from NVIDIA K20X accelerators.

We were able to get a 10x improvement on our LINPACK score versus what we got with Jaguar three years ago for only 19 percent more power. So that’s a big win. And that carries over to the many applications also. We will see a big improvement in the performance with only a minor increase in the total power that’s being used. And we have to do that as we move to the Exascale machines that we’ll be building in the future.”
