Cray Rolls Out Two New Supercomputers

Seattle-based Cray said this week that it has launched two new cluster supercomputers. Cray said its new Cray CS-Storm 500GT and the Cray CS-Storm 500NX systems are specifically aimed at use in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. The new systems use NVIDIA Tesla GPU accelerators. Cray said the new CS-Storm systems provide up to 187 TOPS (tera operations per second) per node, 2,618 TOPS per rack for machine learning, and 658 double precision TFLOPS per rack for HPC applications.
