Title: Introducing Argonne’s Theta Supercomputer

Abstract

Theta, the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility’s (ALCF) new Intel-Cray supercomputer, is officially open to the research community. Theta’s massively parallel, many-core architecture puts the ALCF on the path to Aurora, the facility’s future Intel-Cray system. Capable of nearly 10 quadrillion calculations per second, Theta enables researchers to break new ground in scientific investigations that range from modeling the inner workings of the brain to developing new materials for renewable energy applications.
