Northern Data, a leader in Bitcoin mining and HPC applications, has been acquired 24,000 EPYC servers and 223,000 AMD and Nvidia GPUs Shares from Block.one, priced at 195 million euros and another 170 million euros. The new GPUs and servers will make Northern Data’s server infrastructure more powerful than Fugaku, the world’s fastest supercomputer.

Northern Data expects that the complete installation of the GPU server system will be completed in the third quarter of 2021, with servers installed in multiple countries/regions, including Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Germany. The additional hardware will more than double the original computing power of Northern Data, from 1.29 exaflops of FP32 performance to 2.6 exaflops.
