Appro, a provider of supercomputing solutions, announced today its next-generation of the Appro Xtreme-X™ Supercomputer, named Gordon, will use Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Solid-State Drive 710 Series to drive an unprecedented 35 million Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS). This will drive some of the world's most advanced scientific research applications capable of analyzing individual genomes to tailor drugs to specific patients, developing more accurate prediction of earthquake's impact on buildings and offering greater insights to planet climate change.

Today the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) and University of Texas announced that they will deploy a 10 petaflop (or 10,000 trillion operations per second) supercomputer called “Stampede”.  Scheduled to power on in early 2013, 20 percent of the supercomputer’s performance will be delivered by future Intel® Xeon® E5 processors and 80 percent, which is equivalent to 8 petaflops, will be provided by Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture co-processors codenamed “Knights Corner”.
