TACC supercomputers help microfluidics researchers make waves at the microscopic level Have you ever noticed the way water flows around boulders in a fast-moving river, creating areas of stillness and intense motion? What if those forces of fluid flow could be controlled at the smallest levels? In May 2013, researchers from UCLA, Iowa State and Princeton reported results in Nature Communications about a new way of sculpting tailor-made fluid flows by placing tiny pillars in microfluidic...

Cray Goes A Little Smaller With New Line Of Supercomputers
2013-05-07 12:55:51

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Smaller can be better, especially when it is a supercomputer. Cray, a company often credited with building the world´s first supercomputer, has reduced the size of its largest machine. The computer maker introduced its “aggressively priced” lineup of supercomputers on Tuesday. The new Cray XC30-AC supercomputer is aimed at an emerging class of customers who desire high-performance computing (HPC), but don´t...

Sequoia Passes One Million Cores
2013-01-28 19:36:35

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The most advanced gaming PCs rely on quad-core processors, but that pales to what researchers at Stanford's Engineering Center for Turbulence Research (CTR) have created with a new record in computational science. The Stanford researchers successfully used a supercomputer with more than one million computing cores to solve a complex fluid dynamics problem; that being the prediction of noise generated by a supersonic jet engine....

Bug Repellant For Supercomputers
2012-11-15 21:57:52

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online For many computer users, finding a bug or an error in their system can be more than difficult, it can be a chore with no clear beginning or ending. Personal computers of all types and platforms have become increasingly sophisticated in even the last 5 years, yet they cannot perform nearly as well as today´s supercomputers. These shelves and racks of processors and other components run so many calculations, they have to be...
