Three years ago a group of computer scientists and high-performance computing experts at Virginia Tech made supercomputing history when they built System X, a 2200 processor Apple G5 cluster. System X debuted in November 2003 as the third most powerful supercomputer in the world, and the fastest academic supercomputer at the time. Today, motivated by the lessons learned from the System X project, and in order to partner with current users of System X and other high-end computing resources, the College of Engineering (CoE) has established the Center for High-End Computing Systems (CHECS).
