"[MIC] gives us the compute density we need" to get to deliver exaflops of performance by 2018, Goh said.
These and other measures could lead to supercomputers that can deliver performance of over one exaflop, or 1000 petaflops, by 2020.
Further, to meet the growing challenge of running large-scale simulations in the multi petaflops and exaflops range of computing, Intel, Forschungszentrum Julich (FZJ) and ParTec will announce a multi-year commitment to create the ExaCluster Laboratory (ECL) at Julich.
Future computers--whether major exaflops engines used to design and simulate everything from controlled fusion reactors to rapid-response medicines, to compact low-power robot brains for autonomous control of spacecraft, airplanes, automobiles, and homes, to embedded smartware in our clothes and bodies--may look less like today's microprocessors and much more like CCAs.
