Zurich, Switzerland, 1 Mar 2011—Energy consumption poses a critical challenge in the development of next-generation supercomputers and IT systems. Within the next 10 years, IBM scientists and developers aim to build computers featuring exascale computing performance, but with an absolute energy consumption that is not much higher than that of today's largest systems. Exascale computers are capable of reaching a performance of one ExaFLOP/s, which corresponds to 10 18 floating point operations per second. This is about 300 times faster than today's fastest supercomputer.
