I’ve seen this press release a couple times now, but I can’t verify it.
AMAX has launched one of the world’s 200 fastest supercomputers. This supercomputer represents a new generation of high-performance computing (HPC) platform that is based on the energy efficient Intel quad core Xeon processing technology, providing customers with highly available, scalable, and low power consumption HPC architecture.
Fair enough, except I can’t find it on the Top500 list anywhere, and the press release doesn’t provide any details about the customer. I’m inclined to think that they’ve designed a solution that, if purchased, could feasibly place in the top 200 of the Top500. Which is kind of icky PR.
But does anyone know for sure? Ever seen this computer or know the company? I’ve sent the press contact listed on the release an email…will let you know if I hear back.
