Getting to Exascale: Nothing Is Easy

In the weeks leading to today’s Exascale Day observance, we set ourselves the task of asking supercomputing experts about the unique challenges, the particularly vexing problems, of building a computer capable of 10,000,000,000,000,000,000 calculations per second. Readers of this publication might guess, given Intel’s trouble producing the 7nm “Ponte Vecchio” GPU for its delayed Aurora system for Argonne National Laboratory, that compute is the toughest exascale nut to crack. But according to the people we interviewed, the difficulties of engineering exascale-class supercomputing run the systems gamut. As we listened to exascale’s daunting litany of technology difficulties….
