Check out this badboy our research department just got:


The Department recently took delivery of a new research computer, comprising 104 2.2GHz Opteron CPUs running as a Linux cluster. The machine contains 44 dual processor nodes with 4Gbytes RAM each, and eight dual processor nodes with 8GBytes RAM each, all linked via Gbit/second ethernet switches. It is currently the most powerful machine in the University.
