Supercomputer will create the largest 3D map of the universe

The US Department of Energy's National Energy Research Computing Center (NERSC) has partnered with NVIDIA to create one of the world's most powerful supercomputers, Perlmutter. It will be used to create the largest 3D map of the universe.

The initial version of Perlmutter includes 1536 nodes, each of which is a complex of a 64-core Epyc 7763 processor and four NVIDIA A100 GPUs. The performance of the entire system reaches almost four exaflops. Perlmutter claims to take several days to process information that takes a year on other devices.

Therefore, the supercomputer will perform a difficult task – it will build the largest 3D map of the visible Universe in history. This map will allow you to study dark energy. Perlmutter has to process “dozens” of galaxy images.
