In this time-lapse video, a Fujitsu Primergy supercomputer is constructed at the National Computational Infrastructure at the Australian National University.

System Specifications:

  • 57,000 cores = 15,000 home PC’s
  • 160 terabytes of RAM = 40,000 home PC’s
  • 10 petabytes of hard disc = 10,000 PC hard drives
  • 1,200 teraflops of peak computational performance

Debuting at #24 in the world in the TOP500 list, this supercomputer is based on technology developed for the ‘K’ computer in Japan, which was until recently the world’s fastest machine.
