  2. Topics • Update on Cray Inc. • Cray Earth Sciences Focus • Cray X1 Application Performance

  3. In the news…

  4. Recent Key Accomplishments • Cray X1 Introduction • Department of Energy Office of Science X1 Evaluation • Department of Energy ASCI Sandia Red Storm Contract • DARPA Contract/Cascade Project • Financial Foundation • Organizational Growth

  5. Cray X1 Introduction • Five early-production systems shipped in 2002. • First customer ship was on schedule in December 2002. • >260 Nodes delivered; > 13 Tflops. • Production ramp-up in 2003.

  6. DOE Office of Science X1 Evaluation

  7. ORNL Evaluation

  8. Sandia Red Storm ASCI Project • $90+M contract with Sandia National Labs. • Design and development of a massively-parallel, high-bandwidth system. • Key system characteristics • Massively parallel system – 10,000 AMD 2 GHz processors • High-bandwidth mesh-based custom interconnect • High-performance I/O subsystem • Fault tolerant • Full system delivery in 2004

  9. DARPA – Cascade Project • Advanced Research Program • Goal of a “trans-petaflops system” • Robust, easier to program, more broadly applicable • Phase I • Started in June 2002 for one year • Five total vendors • University partners • Phase II • Cray proposal selected • Three total vendors • $49.9M Three-year contract • Phase III planned for 2006

Dec 31, 2001 Dec 31, 2002 Mar 31, 2003 $ in Thousands Cash and Cash Equivalents $12,377 $23,916 $61,309 Working Capital ($5,724) $27,351 $82,412 Total Assets $127,087$145,245 $201,653 Total Debt $15,712$4,537 $3,546 Shareholders Equity $39,750$83,561 $138,162 Financial Highlights • 2002Q1 ~2003Q2 - Six contiguous profitable quarters • Increasing revenue growth • 2003 revenue guidance: ~$220 million • X1 sales are expected to be ~$140 million. • Significant R&D funding • Public offering in February 2003 raised $48M

  11. Cray Earth Sciences Focus • Key market for Cray technologies. • Market that pushes the frontiers of supercomputing. • Cray has unique offering. • Rapidly growing and developing a team of environmental applications analysts. • >15 PhD level Applications Analysts worldwide. • 6 hired in within last year. • Focused on continuously supporting key weather, climate and ocean applications. • ORNL collaboration • Focus on high-end climate science. • Porting and optimization of NCAR CCSM to X1.

  12. Cray X1 Design Approach • Cray X1 was designed from the ground up as an MPP architecture with vector processors: • Highly scalable, shared memory MPP. • Scalable operating system with single system image. • Heterogeneous Storage Area Network. RAID Tape Archive Server Data Centric Storage Area Network Cray X1 RAID

  13. Cray X1 Features • Fast Single Processor: • 12.8 Gflops MSP • Memory Bandwidth: • Single processor: 24 GB/s STREAM TRIAD • Scaled: 1171 GB/s (15 Nodes/1 Chassis) STREAM TRIAD • Network Performance: • A 128 node system has a typical latency of ~1µs and a bisection bandwidth of ~820 GB/s. • Scalable Architecture – not clustered: • 2-D Torus network • Scalable operating system: • Single Operating System to 512 MSPs (>6 Tflops) • ADIC StorNext SAN and HSM.

  14. Cray X1 LC Chassis16 Nodes; > 800 Gflops Cray X1 Node 51.2 GFLOPS Two I/O channel pairs per node = 4 x 1.2 GB/s = 4.8 GB/s Local node memory Peak BW = 16 slices x 11.4 GB/s/slice = 182.4 GB/s Capacity = 16, 32 (late 2003), 64 (late 2004) GB 512 Banks Inter-node network Two ports per M-chip 1.6 GB/s peak both directions per port 2D Torus  102.4 GB/s

  15. 128 Nodes – 512 CPUs – 6.4 TFLOPS
