Perlmutter (also known as NERSC-9) is a supercomputer scheduled to be delivered to the United States Department of Energy in 2020. It is being built by Cray and is based on their upcoming Shasta architecture which is planned to utilize Zen 3 based AMD Epyc CPUs ("Milan") and next-generation Nvidia Tesla GPUs. Its intended use-cases are nuclear fusion simulations, climate projections and material and biological research. It is predicted to reach approximately 100 PFLOPS of processing power
