Posted: 02:41PM

The Oak Ridge National Laboratory will be putting the recently announced Fermi GPU architecture by Nvidia to good use, announcing its intent to build a new supercomputer. The new supercomputer is estimated to be 10 times faster than the current fastest supercomputer. The Fermi based machined will be used for research in energy and climate change. Nvidia has been breaking into the scientific computing market with its Tesla based CUDA GPUs, a market previously dominated by CPUs. The computing power that will be available with GPU supercomputers is impressive already, with performance undoubtedly growing in the future.
