Elijah Charles from Intel presented this deck at the 2016 HPC Advisory Council Switzerland Conference.
"The Exascale computing challenge is the current Holy Grail for high performance computing. It envisages building HPC systems capable of 10^18 floating point operations under a power input in the range of 20-40 MW. To achieve this feat, several barriers need to be overcome. These barriers or “walls” are not completely independent of each other, but present a lens through which HPC system design can be viewed as a whole, and its composing sub-systems optimized to overcome the persistent bottlenecks."
