750,000 Cores Makes For One EPYC Supercomputer

Do You Even PetaFLOP?

The UK Government just inked a £79m with Cray for the Archer2, a 28PFLOPS EPYC powered supercomputer which will be made available to scientists and engineers across the UK.  It will contain 5,848 compute nodes, each packing a pair of 64-core AMD Epyc Rome processors clocked at 2.2GHz and a mere 1.57PBs of system memory.  If you are pondering how to set one of these up, you need to shop around for something similar to the 23 liquid-cooled Shasta Mountain cabinets that will be used to house this beast. 

Pop by The Register for more details on what is inside Archer2.

All three are dwarfed by the world's fastest-known beasts, such as America's 201-petaFLOPS IBM-Nvidia Summit, and the upcoming generation of publicly known exascale monsters.
