The Cray XC50 is a massively parallel multiprocessor supercomputer manufactured by Cray.[1] The machine can support Intel Xeon processors, as well as Cavium ThunderX2 processors, Xeon Phi processors and NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPUs.[2] The processors are connected by Cray's proprietary "Aries" interconnect, in a dragonfly network topology.[1] The XC50 is an evolution of the XC40, with the main difference being the support of Tesla P100 processors.[3]
