Cray XC30 Supercomputer Series
The Cray XC30 series marks the first time Cray is using industry-leading Intel® Xeon® processors in a high-end supercomputer line, scaling in excess of 1 million cores.
Enabled by a robust Intel Xeon processor road map, Aries high performance interconnect and flexible Dragonfly network topology, the Cray XC30 supercomputer provides the low latency and scalable global bandwidth to satisfy the most challenging multi-petaflop applications. Its architecture implements two processor engines per compute node and has four compute nodes per blade. Compute blades stack in eight pairs (16 to a chassis) and each cabinet can be populated with up to three chassis.
Today, the Intel Xeon processors can provide up to 3,072 cores and enable 66 teraflops of performance per cabinet. Future processor upgrades will boost clock frequency and bump the number of embedded cores, accelerating overall system performance. The open architecture of the Cray XC30 series offers intranode flexibility, empowering users with the option to run applications with either scalar or accelerator processing elements depending on their requirements for parallelism.
