NEC gets first order for SX-9 supercomputer
A week to the day since NEC launched its new SX-9 supercomputer, the company has its first order.
Tohoku University in the northern Japanese city of Sendai has ordered a 16-node system, the computer maker said. The new computer should achieve a peak performance of 26.2T Flops (floating point operations per second) making it the fastest SX-series supercomputer in Japan, according to NEC.
The machine will be used at the university's Information Synergy Center. The center supports scientists working in cutting-edge fields such as aeronautics and space, environmental simulations, IT and nanotechnology and has a long history of using NEC computers. It employed an NEC SENAC-1 shortly after it opened in 1969 and became an early customer for NEC supercomputers with an SX-1 in 1986.
