These and other measures could lead to supercomputers that can deliver performance of over one exaflop, or 1000 petaflops, by 2020.
This lab will develop key technologies, tools and methods to power multi petaflops and exaflops machines, focusing on the scalability and resilience of those systems.
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.
This new generation of supercomputers will be capable of achieving a performance of more than one exaflops, i.
