Penguin Computing has announced that Professor Min Zhou from the School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology has installed a Penguin Computing cluster. The new machine will utilize the much anticipated AMD Barcelona quad-core processors.
We believe the AMD based solution offers a more suitable architecture for our HPC applications and we chose Penguin Computing for their expertise and because we are pleased with the historic and on-going support Penguin has provided us here at Georgia Tech,” said Professor Zhou. “These applications are primarily involved in the parallel processing of digital images from experiments and computational modeling and to carry out molecular dynamics and finite element simulations of mechanical and thermal processes in materials.”
The primary cluster workload will be related to the study of the fundamental deformation and failure mechanisms of materials at micro and nano scales.
