Abstract

Virginia Tech made supercomputing history in the fall of 2003 when it created the most powerful supercomputer at any university in the world in record time. Today, Virginia Tech announced plans to migrate its cluster of Power Mac G5 desktop computers to Apple's new Xserve G5 rack mounted 1U server. Xserve G5, the most powerful Xserve yet, delivers over 15 gigaflops of peak double-precision processing power per system and features the same revolutionary PowerPC G5, 64-bit processor used in Virginia Tech's cluster of 1,100 Power Mac G5s ' the world's third fastest supercomputer.
