LLNL scientists eagerly anticipate El Capitan’s potential impact

Jeremy Thomas/LLNL

While LLNL is eagerly awaiting the arrival of its first exascale-class supercomputer, El Capitan, physicists and computer scientists running scientific applications on testbeds for the machine are getting a taste of what to expect. “El Capitan has the potential of enabling more than 10x increase in problem throughput,” said Teresa Bailey, associate program director for computation physics in the Weapon Simulation and Computing program. “This will enable 3D ensembles, which will allow LLNL to perform previously unimagined uncertainty quantification and machine learning studies."
