Fujitsu Australia will upgrade the power of Australia's fastest computer 10-fold by November, when the system will go live at the Australian National University (ANU)'s National Computational Infrastructure.

ANU vice-chancellor Brian Schmidt said the Gadi system "will give researchers the tools to unlock the mysteries of the universe, predict and manage natural disasters, advance cancer research, and design new materials for future technologies."

Gadi will employ both Fujitsu and Lenovo Neptune direct liquid cooling technologies with warm water, to facilitate high-density computing.

Second-generation Intel Xeon Platinum processors, Intel Optane DC persistent memory, and NVIDIA V100 graphic-processing units will expedite deep learning training and inferencing.

Mellanox's HDR InfiniBand technology, which can transfer data at 200 gigabytes per second, will connect the supercomputer to storage.
