Germany‘s most energy-efficient supercomputer

Top placement for the Göttingen supercomputer: In the most recent issue of the Green500 list of the world‘s most energy-efficient supercomputers the new system “Grete“, which has just been taken into operation, achieved rank 1 in Germany and rank 12 worldwide. This placement is based on a benchmark run that was optimized for energy efficiency and conducted by the system’s provider, MEGWARE Computer Vertrieb und Service GmbH based in Chemnitz. On the TOP500 list of the world‘s fastest supercomputers Grete obtained a compute performance of 1.83 PFLOPs in the Linpack benchmark and achieved rank 470. “Grete“, named after Grete Hermann (1901-1984) who as a doctoral student of Emmy Noether made contributions fundamental for computer algebra, is a High Performance Computing cluster based on graphics processors (GPU) and extends the HPC system “Emmy“, which GWDG is operating for the University of Göttingen since 2018, by an especially powerful and energy-efficient component.
