Cheyenne Supercomputer Makes Its Debut

The National Center for Atmospheric Research’s new supercomputer, Cheyenne, began production operations this month, making its debut as the 20th fastest supercomputer in the world. It will allow researchers to tackle challenging problems by running sophisticated models at higher resolutions and is three times more powerful than its predecessor, Yellowstone.
