SGI releases new UX Supercomputer on Hawkins

I know it makes it sounds like SGI have set the dogs on the estimed Prof Stephen Hawkins. In fact, they've allowed his group the first access to the new hardware. Packing upto 4,096 cores and 64 TB or memory, it's hoped that the new UX class will bring supercomputer power in a more manageable form

The aim of the SGI UV is to scale out much like a desktop computer, meaning no code re-write and using standard operating systems. The focus appears to have moved away from algorithms to outcomes. Need more horsepower? Add more blades and carry on.

I have to say how nice it is to see the UK getting some serious computing power, and we'll be keeping track of Professor Hawking and his groups findings with the new hardware.
