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 1,630 Intel Xeon "Haswell" processor nodes, 9,300 Intel Xeon Phi "Knight's Landing" nodes, and a 1.5 PB Cray Data Warp Burst Buffer.
NERSC is exploring new ways to more efficiently move data in and out of Cori, its newest supercomputer, including software-defined networking. Read More »
Six application development teams participating in NESAP, NERSC’s next-generation code optimization effort, gathered at Intel in early August for a marathon “dungeon” session designed to help tweak their codes for the next-generation Intel Xeon Phi Knight’s Landing manycore architecture at the heart of NERSC’s new Cori supercomputer.
