The FastForward program complements the DesignForward program and focused on co-design efforts between DOE centers and vendors with the goal of improving processor, memory, storage and I/O technologies. Furthermore, these improvements should be aimed at maximizing energy efficiency and concurrency while increasing performance, productivity, and reliability.  Further information and vendor documents can be found here and here

A follow on program to the original FastForward program, FastForward2, is now in progress. More information on the program and vendors involved can be found here.
