Nvidia confirms AMD-powered supercomputer now part of 5-exaflops giant

The latest Top500 supercomputer rankings contained more than just the news that an ARM-based supercomputer is now the fastest machine on the planet (with the A64FX inside). Tucked away at number 7 in the list is an intriguing new entry, named Selene.

What makes this supercomputer so special is not that it contains AMD’s Rome EPYC 7742 processors (64 cores, clocked at 2.25GHz) and Nvidia’s latest A100 accelerators. No, the interesting part is that the machine is owned by Nvidia itself.
