"The system delivered 52.23 GFlops per watt while consuming 21.1 mW of power during the run. At full utilization, Frontier consumes 29 mW. "

mW = miliwatts, MW = megawatts!

Intel's only in there counting the top 500, which includes older and much slower systems. Try the top 100 for an eye-opener. Intel has a lot of work in making up for the last decade of basically tic-tok monopoly production--having spent a fortune on R&D with little to show for it. AMD means to be #1, make no mistake about that. I hope that Intel can become competitive again, but I'm just not sure the company has the guidance or the motivation at this point.

AMD just took the #1 & #3 slots for Super Computing.
ARM took #2 with Fugaku.
POWER & nVIDIA took #4/#5 slots respectively.

Where's Intel in the Super Computing race? They're below the Top 5.

That's got to be embarassing for Intel, no matter how you look at it.

I'd like to see a chart showing cost of super computers over time and how it scales with performance. I wonder if it's similar to cost/performance of chip manufacturing.

Aurora vs Frontier exemplifies Intel vs AMD on so many levels. If El Capitan becomes operational before Aurora that will really be a black eye for Intel.
