Roadrunner Supercomputer to be Decomissioned

  • Thread starter CFDFEAGURU

I have always wanted to work with a supercomputer. My CFD (computational fluid dynamics) analyst has 128 paralleled processors at his office and that is as close as I have come so far.

Maybe I could buy this one? :)

there are some people doing some weird things with ARM chips.

multi-threading, multi-cores, parallel, those concepts can be confusing. you could either make it multi-seats while more people sharing the same computer or one person using more than one computer.

I think I would just build my own computer with dual xeon e5 with 64gb of ram, add one of these if it's not enough:

if the software it's related to cuda, then Nvidia , opencl then AMD.
