Project Columbia

Posted Aug 06, 2004 in Science, Technology.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will be collaborating with Intel and SGI to create a supercomputer at the Ames Research Center. Called Project Columbia, the Linux server will consist of a cluster of 20 interconnected SGI Altix 512-processor systems, for a total of 10,240 Itanium 2 processors. The supercomputer is expected to be completed before Christmas. Do you think they'll let me play Doom 3 on it?
