New Supercomputing Record Set

Scientists at the Stanford University-based Center for Turbulence Research, which is operated by both the school and NASA, set a new supercomputing record by using a million processing cores to model supersonic jet noise. They used the US Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s IBM Sequoia Blue Gene/Q system to solve the complex fluid-dynamics problem. Their work could not only help develop quieter aircraft engines, but also proves that million-core simulations are possible. (EurekAlert)(Stanford University)
