The Korea Institute of Science and Know-how Data (KISTI) participated within the Worldwide Supercomputing Convention (ISC) Excessive Efficiency 2023. The ISC Excessive Efficiency 2023 is a world convention and exhibition that fosters the expansion of a world excessive efficiency computing (HPC) neighborhood of know-how suppliers and customers.
The mixed efficiency of Korean supercomputers owned by Samsung, SK Telecom, and KT took eighth place on this planet in keeping with the outcomes on the Worldwide Supercomputing Convention (ISC) 2023 held in Hamburg, Germany, from Might 21 to 25, the KISTI introduced on Might 25.
Korea positioned eight supercomputers within the high 500 of the worldwide supercomputer rankings, together with Samsung Superior Institute of Know-how’s SSC-21 (twentieth place), the Korea Meteorological Administration’s twin supercomputers Guru and Maru (thirty seventh), SK Telecom’s Titan (forty seventh), KISTI’s Nurion (forty ninth), and KT’s DGX Superford (No. 58th). KT’s supercomputer entered the listing for the primary time. Their mixed computing energy ranked eighth in total efficiency. The mixed variety of their tremendous computer systems was ninth most.
U.S.-based Oak Ridge Nationwide Laboratory’s Frontier took the highest spot for the second yr in a row. Frontier’s measured efficiency was 1.194 exaflops, which is a whopping 119.4 quintillion calculations per second. The second and third ranked have been the identical as 2022. Fugaku in Japan got here in second and LUMI in Finland third.
No adjustments have been made in rankings among the many high 20 apart from new entrants MS Azure and Nvidia, which got here in eleventh and 14th, respectively.
America accounted for practically half (45.8 p.c) of the world’s supercomputer efficiency. Japan adopted with 12.5 p.c and China with 8.9 p.c. Korea positioned eighth with a 2 p.c share.
When it comes to numbers of items, america led with 150. China (134) took second place, adopted by Germany (36), Japan (33), France (24), the UK (14), and Canada (10). Apart from China, the listing is dominated by Western industrialized nations (G7).
KISTI has been getting ready to introduce supercomputer Unit 6 with 600 petaflops (1 petaflops is 1,000 trillion calculations per second) of efficiency since August 2022.
