Texas-Sized Supercomputer to Break Computing Power Record

Abstract:
Sun Microsystems announced today that its hardware will power the largest supercomputer ever built, weighing in with 62,976 CPU cores, 125 terabytes of memory, 1.7 terabytes of disk space, and 504 teraflops of performance.

The computer, which has been dubbed "Ranger," will be hosted at the Texas Advanced Computing Center at the University of Texas, Austin. It is due to go online on January 1, 2008.

Scientists expect that research in astrophysics, genomics, nanotechnology and meteorology will be carried out on the Ranger system.
