The new supercomputer in Wyoming will be among the fastest computers in the world and will help research phenomena including climate change, severe weather, wildfires and solar flares.

Hewlett-Packard Enterprise in Houston won a bid to provide equipment ranging from US$35 million (approximately Rs 2.55 billion) to US$40 million (approximately Rs 3 billion) for use in the Supercomputing Center in Cheyenne, Colorado. National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder. Announced on Wednesday.

In theory, the HPE-Cray EX supercomputer will be able to perform nearly 20 million calculations per second, which is 3.5 times the speed of the existing computer at the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center.

The maximum speed per second of the new machine will be roughly equivalent to the mathematical equation that everyone on the planet completes one month per month.

Powerful features will enable people to perform some of the most complex simulations of large-scale natural and man-made events.

According to the National Center for Atmospheric Research, this supercomputer should be among the 25 fastest computers in the world since it was installed this year and put into operation in early 2022.

The director of the center, Everette, “will support basic research in a way that can produce more detailed and useful predictions about the world around us, thereby helping to make our society more vulnerable to ever-increasing costs and increasingly severe disasters. Adaptability and contribute to the improvement of human health and well-being” Joseph said in a press release.

Since its opening in 2012, more than 4,000 people from hundreds of universities and other institutions around the world have used the supercomputing center.

The plant’s current supercomputer is called Xia’an, which is more than three times faster than its predecessor called Huangshi.

A competition among elementary school students in Wyoming will determine the name of the new supercomputer.
