Abstract:

Oak Ridge National Laboratory recently received delivery of a 25 TF Cray XT3. The XT3 is Cray’s third-generation massively parallel processing system. The system builds on a single processor node—the AMD Opteron—and uses a custom chip—called SeaStar—to provide interprocessor communication. In addition, the system uses a lightweight operating system on the compute nodes. This poster describes our initial experiences with the system, including micro-benchmark, kernel, and application benchmark results. In particular, we provide performance results for important Department of Energy applications areas including climate and fusion.
