    Big Iron in the Steel City

    I want one of these for my Linux desktop. But then it only has 2,728 Alpha processors. ;D :P

    Quote:
    The brain of the six teraflop system will be a network of Compaq AlphaServers, 682 of them, each of which itself contains four Compaq Alpha microprocessors. Existing terascale systems rely on other processors, but extensive testing by PSC and others indicates that the Alpha processor offers superior performance over a range of applications.

    Along with processing power, the terascale system will feature 2.7 terabytes of memory, high-bandwidth, low-latency Quadrics Supercomputer World interconnects among AlphaServers, and remarkable capabilities for large-scale data handling, including the ability to write memory to disk in three minutes, and to write a terabyte per hour to tape.
