back to article HPE flies low-energy Eagle into National Renewable Energy Lab's data centre

HPE has been named as supplier of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's new low-energy supercomputer, Eagle, which will power up in January 2019. Eagle is planned to be 3.5 more powerful than the lab's 2.26 petaflop Peregrine system, and will spend its time simulating complex processes, systems and phenomena for energy …

    Will it run Crysis?

    Nice. I always wanted an 8-dimensional hypercube topology that provides a high bisection bandwidth myself. That will definately make things faster!

      I wonder how they will build the 8 dimensional hypercube in our 3D world ?

      Is this marketing just up-selling things for the engineers to deliver the detail on again ?

        Nope, this is about the network interconnections

      What was the power requirements of the old computer?

      Low energy?

      I can't see how this could be regarded as a low-energy computer either.

      Capturing 97% of the 'wasted' heat for possible re-use doesn't make it low-energy - the energy still has to be used.
