MARCONI - CINECA second most powerful supercomputer in Europe

December 6, 2017

According to the most recent TOP500 List, published in November 2017, the MARCONI Lenovo Intel Xeon Phi system based at CINECA Supercomputing Center in Casalecchio di Reno (BO) and upgraded with 314,384 cores maintains its number 14th position in the list with 7.47 petaflops (previous MARCONI cluster included 241,808 cores).
MARCONI became the second most powerful supercomputer in Europe after Piz Daint, a Cray XC50 system installed at the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) in Lugano, Switzerland.
Piz Daint maintains its number three position in the list with 19.59 petaflops, after being upgraded last year with NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPUs, which more than doubled its HPL performance of 9.77 petaflops.
