ALSO CALLED: 64-bit Computers
DEFINITION: Blue Gene is a supercomputer development project at IBM for a series of high-performance system-on-a-chip (SoC) arcitectures with minimal power demands. The series includes Blue Gene/L, Cyclops64, (formerly Blue Gene/C), Blue Gene/P and Blue Gene/Q. Blue Gene/L, which runs on Linux, employs thousands of processors, each of which demands minimal electric current. Because Blue Gene/L dissipates relatively  …

SUPERCOMPUTERS DEFINITION (continued): …  little energy as heat in proportion to its computational power, it is sometimes called "Frost." The Blue Gene/L architecture uses two processors on a chip. For example, 1024 Blue Gene nodes (2048 processors) can be configured in a single rack, demanding approximately 25 kilowatts (kW) of electricity. The fact that a large number of processors can be put into a small space translates into scalability as well as compactness. In proportion to its physical size, Blue Gene exhibits unprecedented computing speed. Cyclops64 is in development as the first supercomputer-on-a-chip architecture. IBM is developing …
