CNET News reported yesterday that Intel Labs Europe is joining several other French institutions researching exascale futures
The Exascale Computing Research Center will investigate machines that can perform 1,000 times more calculations than today’s top supercomputers, Intel said, and the chipmaker is spending millions of dollars on the three-year partnership.
The effort also includes Commissariat a l’Energie Atomique, Grand Equipement National de Calcul Intensif, and the Universite de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines. Those organizations will jointly match Intel’s investment, Intel said.
