In this video from ISC 2017, Mateo Valero from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center describes the innovations behind MareNostrum 4, the #13 supercomputer on the TOP500.

MareNostrum 4, hosted by Barcelona Supercomputing Center, is entirely aimed at generating scientific knowledge and its computer architecture has been called ‘the most diverse and interesting in the world’ by international experts. Equipped with Intel’s latest processing and networking technologies, MareNostrum provides 11.1 Petaflops of processing power to scientific production. This is the capacity of the general-purpose cluster, the largest and most powerful part of the supercomputer, which will be increased thanks to the installation of three new, smaller-scale clusters, featuring emerging technologies, over the next few months. The capacity of 11.1 Petaflops is 10 times greater than that of MareNostrum 3, which was installed between 2012 and 2013.

According to the Top500 ranking published on 19 June, the MareNostrum 4 supercomputer’s general-purpose cluster is the third most powerful one in Europe and the thirteenth in the world. The Top500 list is based on how quickly supercomputers execute the high-performance linpack benchmark.”
