Video: HokieSpeed Super Powers Research at Virginia Tech

In this video, Professor Wu-chun Feng describes Virginia Tech’s new HokieSpeed hybrid supercomputer.

Virginia Tech crashed the supercomputing arena in 2003 with System X, a machine that placed the university among the world’s top computational research facilities. Now comes HokieSpeed, a new supercomputer that is up to 22 times faster and yet a quarter of the size of X, boasting a single-precision peak of 455 teraflops, or 455 trillion operations per second, and a double-precision peak of 240 teraflops, or 240 trillion operations per second.
