Hewlett Packard Enterprise will deliver supercomputing technology as part of an effort to create the U.K.'s most powerful supercomputer at the University of Bristol, the company said Wednesday.

The university received a 225 million pound ($273.35 million) award from the U.K. government to develop the Isambard-AI supercomputer. The new system is expected to be 10 times more powerful than the U.K.'s current fastest supercomputer and able to perform 200 quadrillion calculations per second, the company said.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise said it will "build and deliver the new system with the next generation HPE Cray EX supercomputers and over 5,000 state-of-the-art Nvidia GH200 superchips." The system is slated to be delivered next summer.

The award was part of the U.K.'s GBP300 million program to create a new national Artificial Intelligence Research Resource, HPE said.
