Cray Inc. has announced that Sweden’s Royal Institute of Technology (KTH: Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan) is the latest organization to order a Cray XT6m supercomputing system. KTH’s PDC Center for High Performance Computing is acquiring a 93-teraflops Cray XT6m supercomputer as part of a national plan by the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) to provide Sweden’s scientists and engineers with access to high-performance computing resources.
The new Cray XT6m supercomputer, which uses the new 12-core AMD Opteron 6100 Series processor, will support researchers in a range of disciplines, including computational chemistry, bioinformatics, molecular dynamics, computational fluid dynamics, and other areas.
The Cray XT6m is the second generation of Cray’s midrange supercomputer. It is designed to scale down Cray’s high-end systems such that an expanded base of users have access to the benefits of a Cray system. Upgradeable from a Cray XT5m, the Cray XT6m is optimized to support scalable application workloads in the midrange high performance computing market where applications require up to 13,000 cores of processing power.
