Although the supercomputing room is running at high speed, the reporter can’t feel the heat generated by the high-speed operation of the cabinet. It turns out that there is another universe on the left side of the motherboard fuselage – the fuselage cooling system. The reporter reached out and felt cold. The constant temperature control of “ice fire interweaving” enables supercomputer to complete the tasks of high-performance computing and storage at the optimal temperature. < / P > < p > the so-called “next generation supercomputer” refers to the supercomputer that can carry out 10 billion mathematical operations per second, which is recognized as “the next crown of supercomputer industry” all over the world, and is one of the focuses of the competition in the high-tech field of the current world powers. According to the timetable of Shenzhen Supercomputing Center, with the strong support of the Ministry of science and technology of the people’s Republic of China and Shenzhen Municipal Party committee and government, the next generation supercomputer is expected to settle in Shenzhen by 2022. < / P > < p > supercomputer is an essential infrastructure for modern scientific and technological innovation. More than 30% of scientific and technological innovation in developed countries such as the United States, Europe and Japan depends on supercomputers, and more than 90% of laboratories in ten provinces of Guangdong Province and new R & D institutions in Shenzhen are also inseparable from supercomputers. Supercomputer is also the basic support platform for disaster prevention and mitigation and smart city. The Pearl River Delta, which is characterized by the electronic information industry, is not only the accessory base of supercomputers, but also a large consumer of supercomputers. Supercomputer provides computing power support for the intelligent industry, and is an important foundation for the electronic information industry to leap from digitization, networking to intelligence. < / P > < p > the relevant person in charge told the reporter that in 2018, the next generation supercomputer prototype system has been successfully developed, and breakthroughs have been made in key technologies such as domestic x86 processor, domestic deep computing accelerator and submerged liquid phase change cooling, laying a foundation for the development of the next generation supercomputer. It is estimated that the E-Class computer to be settled in Shenzhen, based on the domestic self controlled core chip and technology, will continue to peak at more than 2eflops, which is expected to be at the leading level in the world. < p > < p > according to the introduction, Shenzhen is taking Guangming Science City as the main position to build a comprehensive national science center. The second phase of National Supercomputing Shenzhen Center is located in Guangming Science City, which has become the first national science and technology innovation platform of Guangming Science City. At present, the second phase construction of Supercomputing Center is under intense promotion. The relevant person in charge told the reporter that the second phase construction includes three parts: the development of next generation supercomputers, the construction of new parks, and the construction of application ecology. It involves more than ten subsystems, such as supercomputers, refrigeration, power supply, and computer rooms. It is facing a series of challenges, such as high engineering complexity, tight construction period, and high engineering quality requirements. It also needs the strong support and construction work of many government departments The hard work of the people. < / P > < p > it is important to build the next generation supercomputer, but more important is how to improve the application innovation of supercomputer.
