Intel Dual-Core HPC Cluster: A High-Performance Computing Testbed of Next-Generation Intel Xeon Processors

Intel has delivered on "Moore's Law" using dual-core processing to build a 128-node High-Performance Computing (HPC) cluster that delivers theoretical peak performance of 3.2 teraflops and sustained performance of over 2.1 teraflops. Based on off-the-shelf technologies, including the next-generation dual-core Intel Xeon processor and an InfiniBand interconnect, the cluster represents a new era that rapidly increases performance while reducing or holding steady the requirements for power, heat and floor space. Industry collaborators and end-users can access the machine through the Intel Remote Access Service and use it to test-drive their codes and accelerate their move to Intel multi-core computing.
