The world’s first silent supercomputer made in Russia
In the South Ural State University launched a supercomputer, built on a platform with liquid cooling at the board and as a consequence, virtually noiseless. Development of such systems are everywhere, but nowhere so far they have not been brought to the stage of operation, according to its creators.
Supercomputer at the liquid cooling «SKIF-Aurora SUSU» is set in the South Ural State University (SUSU), Chelyabinsk. Peak performance of the machine is 24 Tflops (trillion operations per second), the real productivity — 21.86 Tflops. Now this corresponds to the eighth place in the ranking Top 50 most powerful computers in Russia and CIS
The cost of the supercomputer was 80 million rubles.The supercomputer will be used to solve problems in science, education, economy and social sphere.
