CORAL Seeks Proposals for Mira, Sequoia, and Titan Follow-on Supercomputers


As a three-way collaboration, the CORAL project is collaborative DOE effort to replace today’s Sequoia, Titan, and Mira supercomputers. In this video, LLNL CTO Bronis R. de Supinski describes the objectives of CORAL and how it will lead to Livermore’s next-generation supercomputer.

Earthquake Simulations on Titan Make for Safer Buildings

Researchers at the Southern California Earthquake Centre (SCEC) used ORNL’s Titan machine to simulate a major earthquake at high frequencies up to 10Hz. The calculations will give structural engineers the data required to make predictions about the scale of the damage to buildings caused by the next big earthquake to hit the San Andreas Fault.

GPU-Powered Titan Supercomputer Simulates Molecular Switch that Controls Cells


Researchers are using the GPU-powered Titan supercomputer to study a key molecular switch that controls cell behavior. Scientists want to manipulate cell behavior for a lot of reasons. If they can control cell functions such as movement and development, they can cripple cells and pathogens that are causing disease in the body.

Gordon Bell Finalists Achieve 20 Petaflops on Titan


Researchers are using the GPU-powered Titan supercomputer at record speeds to monitor proteins responsible for cellular behavior. With a sustained performance of 20 petaflops, the application earned the development team from Italy a finalist position for the Gordon Bell Prize.

Gordon Bell Finalist Uses Titan to Power Universe Sky Catalog


Researchers are using the Titan supercomputer to create a comprehensive sky catalog of the development of the universe. The project is a finalist for the 2013 Gordon Bell Prize.

Four Gordon Bell Finalists using GPU-powered Titan Supercomputer


Four of the six finalists for this year’s Gordon Bell Prize conducted their research on the Titan supercomputer.

Supercomputing Reactor Cores With Titan


The Nuclear Energy Institute reports that the Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge is being used to simulate the complex physical environment inside a nuclear reactor’s core, thereby aiding researchers in studying reactor operations and performance. A team at Oak Ridge’s Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL) is using Titan to design a […]

Four of Six Gordon Bell Finalists Used Titan Supercomputer

If awards are any indication, the Titan supercomputer at ORNL is having a productive, inaugural year. Four out of six Gordon Bell Prize finalists used Titan to overcome complex computational challenges in their fields. From the dynamics of millions of crowded proteins to the billions of particles that radiate from passing plasma jets, ultra-high-resolution simulations […]

Up Front Molecular Dynamics Research Speeds through Titan’s New GPUs

Over at OLCF, Katie Elyce Jones writes that Oak Ridge’s move to a hybrid architecture with the Titan supercomputer required years of code planning that is now paying off with new levels of application performance. Porting the same models and algorithms meant for CPUs to a GPU will not get as good of gains as […]

Titan Completes Acceptance Testing

This week the Titan supercomputer at ORNL completed rigorous acceptance testing to ensure the functionality, performance and stability of the machine, one of the world’s most powerful supercomputing systems for open science. As the fastest supercomputer in the world in the November 2012 TOP500, Titan is a Cray XK7 supercomputer comprises 18,688 NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, […]
