Nankai IBM for China's Supercomputer

On September 1, 2003, Tianjin based Nankai University and IBM jointly announced that they would collaboratively work on Nanka Star, a fastest supercomputer in the country. Made of 400 and more Linux knots, Nankai Start will be framec with 800 3.06(iHz Intel processors. The supercomputer will, starting from September 2003, double its speed every  quarter  and  eventually  hit  the  designed computation capacity of 5 trillion times per second by August 2004.

During the one — year development phase for Nankai Start, IBM and Nankai University will also jointly establish an  IBM — Nankai Scientific Computation Institute and make it the world first class high performance computation center through concerted efforts of both sides.
