Supermicro Contributes to the MN-3 Supercomputer Earning #1 on Green500 list

Published by: Research Desk Released: Aug 13, 2021


Supermicro and Preferred Networks (PFN) collaborated to develop the most efficient supercomputer anywhere on earth, earning the #1 position on the Green500 list. This supercomputer, the MN-3, is comprised of Intel® Xeon® CPUs and MN-Core™ boards developed by Preferred Networks.

When looking at the performance per watt of electricity, the MN-3 is ranked #1 in the world in the Green500  ranking. The MN-3 delivers a whopping 21.11 Gigaflops of performance per watt on a benchmark run that showed a total of 1.62 Petaflops performance. In recognition of this engineering effort between Preferred Networks and Supermicro, the MN-3 was awarded the “Number 1 in the Green500” certificate at the annual (virtual in 2020) ISC conference in June, 2020.
