The announcement of the new supercomputers at the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) comes just as IBM also announces that the Max Planck Society, a well-known science institution in Germany, has selected IBM to build it a supercomputer. That machine, which is expected to be completed in 2008, will be focused on investigating how the universe was formed, as well as the make up of nano worlds.
The Max Planck Society's "System p" supercomputer will be designed to hit a peak performance of more than 100 teraflops (100 trillion calculations per second), giving scientists there 20 times the application performance of the Society's current supercomputer, according to a release from IBM.
