OSC issued a press release yesterday announcing that they had upgraded one of their educational clusters. The system is used for both visualization and computation.

What’s interesting about the press release is that they go ahead and factor the GPUs in when talking about performance:

The updated cluster boasts 55 rack-mounted compute nodes. Each node contains a dual core AMD Athlon 64 processor integrated with nVIDIA GeForce 6150 graphics processing units (GPU). An application taking full advantage of the system, using all AMD and nVIDIA processing units, could reach one trillion calculations per second.
