Singapore will build a second national supercomputer system to support the local research community, providing eight times more compute capacity than its predecessor. Slated to be operational by early-2022, the system is one of more planned over the next five years. Singapore’s National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) said Wednesday the new system was expected to deliver up to 10 petaflops of raw compute capacity, or eight times more powerful than its predecessor. Called Aspire1, the current supercomputer was commissioned in 2016, following the establishment of NSCC in 2015 to manage the national high-performance computing (HPC) facility. Funds for the new supercomputer system were part of the government’s SG$200 million grant from the National Research Foundation, a unit under the Prime Minister’s Office, to build up local HPC resources. Singapore puts budget focus on transformation, innovation After tilting last year’s budget towards ’emergency support’ in light of the global pandemic, Singapore’s government will spend SG$24 billion ($18.1 billion) over the next three years to help local businesses innovate and build capabilities needed to take them through the next phase of transformation.
