Cori, a Cray XC40, had a peak performance of about 30 petaflops and debuted in 2017 as the world’s fifth most powerful supercomputer. With 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, the system was named in honor of biochemist Gerty Cori. Cori was 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.
