Reach New Scientific Heights

Predicting weather. Discovering drugs. Finding new energy sources. With performance that can reach—and even exceed—petascale performance, supercomputing gives researchers the power they need to simulate and predict our world. Improving productivity and increasing the number of scientific simulations can have a profound impact on the quantity and quality of their scientific breakthroughs.

Powering the World’s Fastest Supercomputers

Today, NVIDIA GPUs power the fastest supercomputers in the U.S. and Europe. In the U.S., Oak Ridge National Labs’ Summit is the world’s smartest supercomputer, fusing high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver over 200 petaFLOPS of double-precision computing for HPC and 3 exaFLOPS of mixed-precision computing for accelerating scientific discovery.

In addition, supercomputer centers around the world are adopting the NVIDIA Ampere architecture. They’ll use it to bring science into the exascale era and simulate larger models, train and deploy deeper networks, and pioneer an emerging hybrid field of AI-assisted simulations
