nCore sells first BrownDwarf Y-class

nCore HPC, a provider of high-performance, low-latency HPC systems, services and solutions, has announced that Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has become the first customer of nCore’s BrownDwarf Y-class supercomputer.

Introduced last June at the International Supercomputing Conference in Germany, BrownDwarf is a heterogeneous ARM- and DSP-based system that delivers supercomputer-class performance at significantly reduced power levels.

The system will be used by PNNL for projects that aim to advance the performance and power efficiency of embedded computers for a variety of applications. BrownDwarf’s SoC (System on a Chip) will be used as a 'baseline architecture' to study and, ultimately, advance the state-of-the-art for high-performance, power-efficient embedded systems.

nCore says the BrownDwarf Y-Class supercomputer represents a new era in high-performance computing marked by power-efficient, heterogeneous systems. A 144-node configuration delivers 70 teraflops of performance at 10kW inside a 42U high rack.
