Intel Federal has been awarded two subcontracts awarded totaling $19 Million to develop energy-efficient computing and memory technologies as part of the DOE FastForward program.

The primary objective of the Department’s FastForward effort is to begin the long term R&D necessary to impact systems at the end of the decade,” said Dr. William J. Harrod, Division Director of Research in the DOE Office of Science’s Advanced Scientific Computing Research. “The development of entirely new high performance, energy-efficient processor and memory technologies are essential for developing Exascale systems and Intel is initiating highly innovative designs for these components.”

Other FastForward winners announced this week include AMD, IBMNvidia, and Whamcloud. Read the Full Story.
