MareNostrum 5’s Lenovo-built general-purpose partition (GPP) ranked as top x86 GPP on latest TOP500 list
HPC servers provided by Lenovo for MareNostrum 5 manufactured at its purpose-built in-house facility in Budapest, Hungary
Built on award-winning Lenovo Neptune™ liquid cooling technology to drive higher performance while using less energy.
Barcelona, Spain, 30 January 2023 – Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) has today announced that the General Purpose Partition of the MareNostrum 5, a new pre-exascale supercomputer running on Lenovo’s HPC infrastructure, has been classified as the top x86 general-purpose cluster on the recently published TOP500 list of the most powerful supercomputers globally.
Officially inaugurated at Barcelona Supercomputing Center on December 21st, MareNostrum 5 has been built for the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU). The pre-exascale supercomputer will bolster the EU’s mission to provide Europe with the most advanced supercomputing technology and accelerate the capacity for artificial intelligence (AI) research, enabling new scientific advances that will help solve global challenges. It aims to empower a wide range of complex HPC-specific applications, from climate research and engineering to material science and earth sciences, adeptly handling tasks that extend beyond the capabilities of cloud computing.
Showcasing exceptional performance, MareNostrum5 GPP cluster part will achieve 40.1 Rmax PFlop/s with an efficient power consumption of 5.7MW. The system utilizes Lenovo’s cutting-edge fifth-generation Neptune™ direct water-cooled technology, with the heart of the system being 6400 Lenovo ThinkSystem SD650 V3 systems, integrated with the latest 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors.
Lenovo, enabled by the EMEA partner ecosystem, provided the HPC infrastructure built on its award-winning Neptune™ liquid cooling technology. The General-Purpose Partition is the largest of its kind in the world, ranked as the highest x86 general-purpose cluster on the most recent TOP500 list at #19 overall. It was specifically designed to solve complex scientific problems through its capacity to share resources and run multiple tasks or programs simultaneously rather than in isolation. This provides greater flexibility and improved efficiency by enabling access to different users or projects at the same time, depending on their needs.
“We are proud of this joint work with Lenovo, the fruit of which is the MareNostrum5 GPP cluster part, one of the most advanced in Europe and in the world in its characteristics”, commented Sergi Girona, Operations Director at Barcelona Supercomputing Center…
