Atos building a E20 million high performance supercomputer (HPC)

….for the Max Planck Computing and Data Facility in Garching near Munich. With three times the application performance of the Max Planck Society’s current ‘Cobra’ system, it will provide HPC capacity for demanding scientific projects in astrophysics, life science research, materials research, plasma physics and AI.

The system will be powered by 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors and, for the first time in an Atos-based European system, AMD Instinct MI300A accelerators. The full installation, expected in the first half of 2024, will comprise ten BullSequana XH3000 racks with a total of 768 processor nodes and 192 accelerator nodes, complemented by an IBM SpectrumScale storage solution.

Hot water cooling (Direct Liquid Cooling) will enable the system to run without fans, contributing to a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) value of less than 1.05 (1 being the ideal ratio), far below the average of other HPC installations.
