The Department of Energy‘s Oak Ridge National Laboratory launched a supercomputer capable of processing 20,000 trillion calculations per second, according to an article published by the labratory.
The ORNL’s Titan’s computing power will be used for energy, climate change, efficient engines, materials, and other research.
Jeff Nichols, associate laboratory director for computing and computational sciences, said Titan has a combined GPU and CPU in a single system which requires less power.
According to the article, Titan is 10 times faster than the ORNL’s previous calculating supercomputer, Jaguar.
