Cori, a Cray XC40, has a peak performance of about 30 petaflops and debuted in 2017 as the world's fifth most powerful supercomputer. The system is named in honor of biochemist Gerty Cori, the first American woman to win a Nobel Prize in science and the first woman ever to win a Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.

Cori is scheduled to be retired in 2023. It will be available to NERSC users through at least March.

Cori is 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 solid-state device.
