US Agencies Award $62.5 Million for Exascale Computing

The US Department of Energy, Office of Science, and National Nuclear Security Administration has awarded $62.5 million in R&D contracts for exascale-computing projects that can be deployed in national defense, scientific research, and energy security applications. The recipients of the FastForward initiative contracts were AMD, IBM, Intel, Nvidia, and Whamcloud. They now will work on the critical technologies behind energy-efficient computing systems that perform quintillions of floating-point operations per second. Their two-year contracts are for development of processors, memory, storage, and  communication systems between computers and outside networks.
