An Exascale-Class Partnership


For over a decade, Cray and Intel have partnered to bring together the most advanced supercomputers and microprocessor technologies. By doing so, we’ve helped visionaries challenge the limits of possibility. Our collaboration has resulted in HPC systems that don’t just claim to help change the world. They do.

Together, we’re poised again to push discovery to the next level. Coming in 2021, Intel and Cray will deliver the first exascale supercomputer in the United States. Being developed for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory, Aurora is a Cray® Shasta™ supercomputer with Intel innovations in compute processor, memory, and storage technologies.

Read for more details on the Aurora system.

With Intel technology and innovators like Cray, we will enable scientists to explore and address the world’s biggest computing challenges.
