Starting in 2010, the Department of Energy will be releasing a record amount of supercomputing time, 1.3 billion processor hours, as compared to this year's 900 million processor hours, writes Wired Science. The hours up for the taking will be on Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Cray XT system "Jaguar" and Argonne's IBM Blue Gene/P "Intrepid." The DOE's Jeff Sherwood says, "It's for research that would not be possible without petascale computing."
