11.18.2008 - Weather Forecasters Get Wind of Intel's Next Generation Microarchitecture



View Intel-Press related news. Intel's advances in the high performance computing field are being showcased this week at Super Computing '08 in Austin, TX. Among the highlights is the work Intel is doing with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NACR) which uses some of the world's most powerful supercomputers to predict weather and climate change. Its latest 3D atmospheric model, the Weather Research and Forecasting model (WRF), is being used by the National Weather Service, U.S. military and private meteorological services to improve forecasting accuracy and speed. Early tests using Intel's next generation microarchitecture show that NACR has nearly tripled the speed of WRF modeling compared to previous Intel based solutions. The lightning quick modeling will speed the pace of discovery and benefit the general public by providing forecasts that help protect life and property.
