PKI Holland Computing Center Deploys Quad-Core AMD Opteron

The Peter Kiewit Institute (PKI) at the University of Nebraska has deployed 2300 Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors — or 9200 cores — operating at over 60 Teraflops at its Holland Computing Center. Highlights include: -The ease of upgrading from Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors to Quad-Core; -Additionally, this upgrade equated to over triple the original performance with no change in PKI’s thermal footprint whatsoever; -Furthermore, not only does this computing center provide the exact technology environment researchers are looking for, but it also currently serves as the largest Microsoft Computer Cluster in the world.
