GPU computing is the most accessible and energy-efficient path forward for high performance computing (HPC) and the data center. In fact, five of the six Gordon Bell Prize finalists use supercomputers powered by NVIDIA GPUs.

Today, NVIDIA powers the fastest supercomputers in the U.S. and Europe, as well as some of the most advanced systems under construction. In the U.S., Oak Ridge National Labs (ORNL) has introduced Summit, the world’s smartest and most powerful supercomputer. Summit fuses HPC and AI computing with more than 27,000 NVIDIA Volta™ Tensor Core GPUs for over 200 petaFLOPS of double-precision computing for HPC, and 3 exaFLOPS of mixed-precision computing to accelerate scientific discovery.
