Abstract:   Energy efficiency is now a top priority. The first four years of the Green500 have seen the importance of energy efficiency in supercomputing grow from an afterthought to the forefront of innovation as we near a point where systems will be forced to stop drawing more power. Even so, the landscape of efficiency in supercomputing continues to shift, with new trends emerging, and unexpected shifts in previous predictions.
This paper offers an in-depth analysis of the new and shifting trends in the Green500. In addition, the analysis offers early indications of the track we are taking toward exascale, and what an exascale machine in 2018 is likely to look like. Lastly, we discuss the new efforts and collaborations toward designing and establishing better metrics, methodologies and workloads for the measurement and analysis of energy-efficient supercomputing.
