NEC SX-9 “Released”

without comments

NEC has announced their latest development for scientific computing: The NEC SX-9 (the comments are quite interesting); see also here and here.

The HLRS, the federal high performance computing center in Stuttgart, about 500m away from my current office, has a NEC SX-8 installed.


It is everything else but trivial to write code that can take advantage of all the cores and all the bandwidth. Certainly, the power behind such systems is mighty.
