A cool shot of the Curie supercomputer, a Bull-powered system at the French atomic energy agency. In the ninth position this year is the Curie supercomputer system, which resides at the Commissariat a l’Energie Atomique (CEA). The Curie supercomputer, owned by GENCI and operated into the TGCC by CEA, is the first French Tier0 system open to scientists through the French participation into the PRACE research infrastructure. Curie consists of 280 bullx B chassis housing 5,040 bullx B510 nodes, each with two 8-core Intel Sandy Bridge processors and a local SSD disk. The system has a total of 77,000 cores.
