Supercomputer manufacturer Cray has announced a new supercomputer called XC50, the successor to its XC40 model. A major difference with the XC40 is the additional support for the new NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPUs, as well as the latest Xeon and Xeon Phi processors from Intel.

This is the first supercomputer from the company that can deliver one petaflop of performance (at peak) in a single cabinet.

Petascale computing can be used for the steepest of advanced computational tasks, like weather system simulation, quantum chemistry and even simulating the activity of organic brains at low levels, for instance.

It's also increasingly being used in AI, for deep learning applications, which are increasingly looking like the next battleground not only for advanced research, but for the next wave in consumer-facing services, as well.
