Cray Supercomputers To Be AMD Opteron Based

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 4:47 pm

AMD and Cray Inc. announced that they have signed an agreement that extends their successful relationship through the end of the decade. Cray will continue to use AMD Opteron processors for the microprocessor-based supercomputer products Cray develops during this period. In addition, the two firms will actively collaborate on Cray’s mid-2006 proposal for Phase 3 of the federal government’s DARPA HPCS (High Productivity Computing Systems) program.

Cray and AMD will work closely together on Cray’s mid-2006 submission for Phase 3 of the DARPA HPCS program. The program plans to provide economically viable, next-generation high productivity computing systems for the national security, scientific and industrial user communities that are able to run applications at sustained speeds of one petaflop (million billion calculations per second) or more by the end of the decade.
