NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Cori

Cori is NERSC's newest supercomputer (NERSC-8), a Cray XC40. It is named for American biochemist Gerty Cori, the first American woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first woman to be so honored with the prize in Physiology or Medicine. Cori is a unique supercomputer, comprised of 2,388 Intel Xeon "Haswell" processor nodes, 9,688 Intel Xeon Phi "Knight's Landing" nodes, and a 1.8 PB Cray Data Warp Burst Buffer.
