Overview of the systems
The Intel clusters are typical HPC cluster for
scientific computing. Cluster 7 has 36 nodes with
two Intel Xeon X5550, 2.66 GHz CPUs
each. The nodes have 300 GB @ 10.000 RPM local hard disks
and are connected via Infiniband QDR. 30
nodes have 24 GB RAM, 6 nodes have 48 GB
RAM, with 1333 MHz memory frequency.
The cluster has a theoretical performance of 3064 GFLOPS with double precision.
Cluster 8 has 16 nodes with two Intel Xeon X5550, 2.66 GHz CPUs each and as well a 10.000 RPM hard disk. The nodes of this cluster additionally have NVidia GPU cards. For more information aabout GPUs see GPU cluster .
