The Bulgarian EuroHPC Joint Undertaking supercomputer Discoverer is ranked 91st on the TOP500 world’s most powerful supercomputer systems list. The performance of the machine, located on the territory of Sofia Tech Park, was evaluated through special tests carried out according to the standards and requirements of the independent non-governmental organisation that compiles the list.
Discoverer’s test results exceeded the planned computing power of 4,44 petaflops as it reached 4,518.9 petaflops. It also reached a peak performance of 5,942.0 petaflops computing power.
The achieved results place Discoverer on 66th place in the additional ranking list of TOP 500 – HPCG that ranks the HPC and AI workload convergence based on machine learning and deep learning through solving a system of linear equations using new algorithms with mixed precision.
The supercomputer Discoverer based on BullSequana infrastructure is produced and delivered by the worldwide leader in digital transformation Atos. The number of supercomputers ranked on the TOP 500 list, produced by Atos is 36 with total computing power of 206 petaflops. Atos’ BullSequana infrastructure is also used in four additional EuroHPC supercomputing centres in Italy, Slovenia, Luxembourg, and Portugal.
“Discoverer’s excellent placement on the TOP500 supercomputers ranking confirms that the EuroHPC JU is working at full throttle. As the 27th most powerful supercomputer in the European Union, Discoverer is leading the way in European HPC technology.
The inclusion of Discoverer among the top 500 high-performance machines worldwide positions Bulgaria on the world map of high-tech countries and will turn it into a digital hub in Southeast Europe.
