High Performance Computing

GW’s High-Performance Computing Laboratory (HPCL) uniquely addresses the growing needs of a data-driven society. Research on high-performance computing systems is supported by hardware and software technologies designed to strike a balance among computing performance, power-consumption, flexibility and other operational concerns.

The HPCL team targets future parallel-processing computing capabilities able to carry out 1 million trillion calculations per second, as well as small embedded devices and hardware accelerators to enhance processing power across a wide spectrum of applications.

The HPCL team’s pioneering contributions to high-performance computing are recognized worldwide. The team’s strong research program is sponsored by government and industrial organizations.
