Exascale Computing Study Report

 

Beginning in mid-2007, DARPA/IPTO, contracting through AFRL, has sponsored a series of studies intended to understand the future course of mainstream computing technology and determine whether or not it would allow a 1,000X increase in the computational capabilities of computing systems by the 2015 time frame. Where current technology trends were deemed incapable of achieving such increases, the study was also charged with identifying the major challenges and the areas where additional targeted research could lay the groundwork for overcoming them.

 

The following report of the first Exascale Computing Study has been publicly released.  Reports of additional exascale computing studies will be made available here as they are also publicly released.
