"IBM today announced new Intel Itanium-based eServer
and IntelliStation workstations which will form a new Linux
supercluster at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications
(NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Capable
of 1 trillion calculations per second, a cluster of 160 new IBM
Itanium-based systems will be the most powerful Linux supercluster
Scientists will use NCSA's IBM eServer clusters to study a wide
range of research problems, from how gas flows over surfaces at
supersonic speeds to simulations of black hole collisions, which
demonstrate principles of Einstein's General Relativity Theory. The
new Itanium-based eServer cluster will complement the cluster of
512 eServer x330's installed earlier this year.
