Intel and Lenovo announced a multiyear collaboration this week to join forces as the worlds of high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) converge.

Lenovo is behind the TOP500 supercomputers that will be supporting HPC and AI hardware and software solutions from Intel as part of this partnership. The companies cite the combination of 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform and Lenovo Neptune™ liquid cooling technology as just one example of what these companies can offer when they work together to drive progress on HPC.

“Our goal is to further accelerate innovation into the Exascale era, aggressively waterfalling these solutions to scientists and businesses of all sizes to speed discovery and outcomes. We are passionate in helping researchers solve humanity’s greatest challenges.”
