Physics Department Purchases New SuperComputer

The new parallel supercomputerThe Physics Department of Texas Southern University has purchased a new parallel supercomputer. The cluster is composed of five Dell 1950, dual board quad core, 2.0 Ghz, 8 GB of memory,  as compute nodes. A Dell 2950, dual board quad core, 2.0 Ghz, 8 GB memory, 1.5 TB disk, as the head node (total of 48 cores). The top combined processing speed of this system will be 250+ GFlops, roughly 50 time faster then a typical desktop. This machine will be used for research in quantum chemistry, nanotechnology simulation, biostatistics and computational biology, mathematics, computational finance and drug design and discovery. This resource will be made available to all Texas Southern University researcher.
