IMB Summit as the World’s Largest Supercomputer

Summit is the name given to IBM’s supercomputer. This supercomputer is expected to reach America by the end of the year 2018, which will make him have more computational power, in comparison for what it is intended. Originally, this machine was capable of 150 petaflops; however, it would later be capable of 200 petaflops.

Summit will owe all its power to the IBM Power9 microprocessors, and nVidia’s Volta GPUs for match co-processing. The predecessor of this Summit is called as Titan, which has more than 18,000 nodes. Each note has around 500GB of coherent memory and 800GB of non-volatile RAM. It is responsible for providing a high rate of I/O throughput and the nodes will be linked in a non-blocking fat-tree that uses a dual-rail Mellanox EDR InfiniBand interconnect. Once this Summit is fully completed, it will allow researchers in almost all the fields of science, an extraordinary access to solve some of the world’s most dominant challenges.

The Summit is a Chinese built machine, which is declared to be the fastest even before getting actually and fully executed or launched. All the parts of this machine are Chinese. This is also because an embargo prevents US companies from selling their products in China. This means that China is ready to beat all the other superpower or powers in the world by dominating the world of Information Technology, through the creation of fastest computer. There is a lot more to discover with its complete launch.
