Submission + - Intel Aims For 1000-Petaflop Supercomputer By 2018->

siliconbits writes: Intel has laid down its roadmap in terms of computing performance for the next seven years in a press release; in addition, it revealed its expectations until 2027 in one deck of slides shown last week. The semiconductor wants a supercomputer capable of reaching 1000 Petaflops (or one Exaflop) to be unveiled by the end of 2018 (just in time for the company's 50th anniversary) with four Exaflops being the upper end target by the end of the decade.The slide that was shared with us also shows that Intel wants to smash the ZettaFlop barrier — that's one million Petaflops or one billion Teraflops — sometimes before 2030. This, Intel expects, will allow for significant strides in the field of Genomics research, as well as much more accurate weather prediction (assuming Skynet or the Matrix hasn't taken over the world).
