Australian supercomputer fourth greenest in world

Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre

announced its latest supercomputer, Setonix, has been recognised as one of the greenest supercomputers in the world, after ranking in the top5 on the globally recognised Green500 list. Announced today at the international supercomputing conference SC22 in Texas, the ranking puts Setonix in company with exascale supercomputers Frontier in the US and LUMI in Finland, which share the same computing architecture.

Setonix was also named the most powerful public research supercomputer in the Southern Hemisphere, ranking 15 in the global Top500 list this week.

The Green500 is the global benchmark for efficient high-performance computing. The ranking means once fully available to researchers in early 2023, Setonix will enable high-impact research in domains such as radio astronomy, energy and resources, engineering, bioinformatics, health sciences and climate science while lowering its environmental impact.
