PUNE. Nvidia, a maker of processors for a variety of applications, is collaborating with the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-Delhi), to establish a research lab for Exascale computing, the first such lab in the country.

Under the agreement, IIT-Delhi will provide the infrastructure for the Exascale Research Lab, (ERL) including software and computing systems, while Nvidia will provide Graphics Processing Units (GPU) accelerators and access to its supercomputing and scientific application domain expertise, in addition to marketing support.
 
Dr Vijay Bhatkar, father of Indian supercomputing, said the country had crossed the petaflop computer range and needs exascale computers, which are machines capable of performing 1000 trillion operations a second.
