Oak Ridge on the Fermi architecture

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Ornl) today announced plans for a new supercomputer that will use CUDA GPU architecture, the next generation from Nvidia codenamed Fermi. It is expected that Ornl supercomputers, which are used in research in the field of energy and climate change, will be ten times stronger than the fastest supercomputers today. Jeff Nichols, director of Ornl laboratory for computer science and computer science, joined a co-founder of Nvidia, which is the entire Jen-Hsun Huang, the conference during his presentation on key Nvidia GPU technology conference. He was present to researchers and developers, which was 1400, said that the Fermi provide important scientific breakthrough that would have been impossible without new technologies.
