EU Climate Supercomputer Requires 20,000 GPUs

“We require about 20,000 GPUs to perform the digital-twin calculations with the necessary throughput. This machine would have a power envelope of about 20MW.”
– Peter Bauer, co-initiator of Destination Earth (DestinE), on the processing power needed for the EU climate supercomputer. The digital twin of planet Earth “would become a data assimilation instrument that continuously cycles real-time, highly detailed, high-resolution Earth system simulations and ingests observational information from all possible instruments.”
