Army comissions 10 teraflop supercomputer using AMD Opterons and Linux

The Army Research Laboratory Major Shared Resource Center in Maryland will receive a new supercomputer named Stryker to model the behavior of new weapons materials. Stryker will contain 2304 AMD Opteron 2.2 GHz processors in 1186 separate systems. Capable of a peak performance of 10 teraflops, Stryker will be one of the most powerful Linux computers in the world. Linux Networx currently powers Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Lightning computer with a peak performance of 11 teraflops.
