NVIDIA receives DOE funding for HPC research

NVIDIA is among six technology companies to receive a total of US$258 funding from the US Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP).

The funding is to accelerate the development of next-generation supercomputers with the delivery of at least two exascale computing systems, one of which is targeted by 2021.

Such systems would be about 50 times  more powerful than the US’ fastest supercomputer, Titan, located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
