A supercomputer running a massively parallel parallel computer can now do some of the computations that we can’t, using the same hardware and software that runs it.
“We’ve been trying to simulate real world behavior for years,” said David Hsieh, a computer scientist at IBM Research in San Jose, California.
The team at IBM worked on the project for more than a decade and has spent a great deal of time trying to optimize the system to make it perform faster and more efficiently.
The result is called a supercomputing system that can perform more than 10,000 calculations per second and run a virtualized application that runs in real time.
A supercomputer runs at the speed of a single processor.
To do that, the system has a super computer core that’s twice the size of the processor on the machine it’s running on.
That means the core of the supercomputer is twice as fast as the core on a single-core processor.
That supercomputer has an array of processors and memory that are shared between the systems.
The system then has a number of virtual processors running on a shared virtual core.
The virtual cores run code at a rate of 100,000 per second, but the system is not able to see how many of those virtual processors are doing the work, said Hsiehu.
Instead, the supercomputers can see how much time it takes the virtual cores to execute a task, and then they can adjust the workload to compensate.
When you put that together, the result is a system that has an output rate of a thousand or more calculations per hour.
Hsieh says the system can do 10,400 calculations per minute.
That’s faster than the speed at which modern computers can perform most calculations.
But the system doesn’t have to be as fast to do the calculations.
Hsieuh said it could be possible to use this new technology to perform even more computations.
For example, if the system’s output rate increases, the virtual processor can use more resources and more cores, which means the super computer could get a better performance boost than if it were running at its original speed.
As the systems compute more tasks, they could use more memory and resources to run calculations.
This could help the super computers run faster.
It also could mean that supercomputational techniques could be used to make real-world devices more efficient.
For example, HsieH said, it could make a laptop that is faster than a computer that is more powerful than one that is slower.
These supercomputer systems are being built at the IBM Research Center in New York and have been under development for several years.
The work is part of a $5.4 billion initiative called the Computing Science Challenge.
More details can be found in a report in the journal Science that Hsiehl coauthored with Robert B. Cargill, a professor of computer science at the University of California, Berkeley.
This is a developing story.
