Leonardo is built by Atos, Leonardo will be operated by CINECA, a consortium of Italian universities and research centers, and is expected to have Processing capacity greater than 249 petaflops once running.

How do you explain CINECAThe supercomputer will be used to develop applications in areas such as: Artificial intelligence, medicine, renewable energies and bioengineeringIt also plays an important role in finding solutions to combat climate change.

according to to businessLeonardo system It is based on the BullSequana XH2000 architecture and consists of 2 compute units, for a total of 3,500 Intel Xeon processors and 14,000 Nvidia A100 GPUs.🇧🇷 In the future, the supercomputer will also have quantum processors.

In addition to Leonardo and Lumi, MareNostrum 5 at the Barcelona Supercomputing Centerin Spain, is also part of the pre-exascale EuroHPC supercomputer network and will open in 2023.

Remember to file Deucalion, the Portuguese supercomputerinstalled in Minho Advanced Computing Center, It is part of a network Petascale EuroHPC supercomputerswhich also includes systems Meloxena from Luxembourg. Vega from Slovenia. finder from Bulgaria; and Carolina from the Czech Republic.
