"CSCS says that in November of this year it will swap
out the Shanghai chips and upgrade the XT5 box to use the new
six-core Istanbul Opterons announced this week, for a total of
22,128 cores running at the same 2.4GHz and delivering 212
teraflops of number-crunching power. That Istanbul setup of Monte
Rosa will have a total of 59TB of main memory across its nodes.
"The CSCS facility in Lugano was the first site in Europe to
take delivery of Cray's XT3 systems back in 2005, and the Swiss
government has just put funding in place to get the CSCS up up to
the petaflops level with its supers by 2012."
