LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (KRQE) – Los Alamos National Laboratory is spending a hefty penny on a next-generation supercomputer.
The National Nuclear Security Administration announced Wednesday that it will tap Cray Inc. to help develop the supercomputer named Trinity.
The technology will ensure the safety, security, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear stockpile.
It’s expected to make delivery starting mid-2015 and will cost $174 million.
Trinity will be eight-times faster than the current NNSA supercomputer used at Los Alamos.
