SALT LAKE CITY, UT, Nov. 12 – At SC12, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, RSC Group (booth #4721), the leading Russian and CIS full cycle developer and HPC solutions provider, has demonstrated a prototype of a 10 PFLOPS-range (PFLOPS is quintillion floating point operations of double precision per second) supercomputing system at the Joint Supercomputer Center (JSCC) of the Russian Academy of Science (RAS). MVS-10P supercomputer based on RSC Tornado architecture is the Russia’s, CIS and Europe’s largest system with the latest Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. The new supercomputer at JSCC has set several records in different nominations. The prototype system with direct liquid cooling and 523.8 TFLOPS (trillion floating point operations of double precision per second) peak performance sets the Russia’s and CIS energy efficiency record level of more than 1,680 MFLOPS/W, which is 4.8 times increase comparing to the previous energy efficiency record for the region (also achieved by an RSC Tornado-based system with liquid cooling).
