UF Researchers Unveil Super Computer
GAINESVILLE, Fla.- The new computer clocks in at 150 trillion mathematical operations per second.
Based on free space at the Data Center in East Gainesville, the record winning computer has the potential to expand.
Research Computing Director at UF, Erik Deumens says the applications are endless with the arrival of the revolutionary High Performance Super computer at the university of florida.
“It'll allow researchers to really interact with data in a live way, they can go on skype and talk to their colleagues across the nation and they can both be looking at these huge data sets because the infrastructure is there.”
Deumens says the HiPer Gator is a thousand times faster than the internet connection most people use.
HiPerGator is made up of more than 16 thousand processing cores.
More than 18 million dollars was spent between the HiPerGator and the Data Center that houses it.
