Fastest computer in Germany
After the German Meteorological Service in Offenbach owned the fastest computer in Germany for a short time, the Leibniz computer center in Munich has now regained this rank by upgrading.
The local supercomputer SR8000 -F1 has been expanded by Hitachi by 56 to a total of 168 nodes from a maximum of 512 and now has a computing power of 2,016 GFLOPS compared to 1,344 GFLOPS previously. The main memory was also increased from 0.9 terabytes to 1.3 terabytes, and the hard disk capacity grew to 10 terabytes. Because of the Linpack performance, the Leibnizrechenzentrum of the Academy of Sciences hopes to make it into the top 10 in the list of the fastest 500 computers in the world.
