This week the German Gauss Centre for Supercomputing announced that two GCS systems: JUQUEEN and SuperMUC, are the most powerful supercomputers in Europe.

JUQUEEN is targeted to tackle comprehensive and complex scientific questions, called Grand Challenges”, explains Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of JSC. “Projects from various scientific areas can profit from the system’s performance, e.g. in the areas of neuroscience, computational biology or energy and climate research. It enables complicated calculations in quantum physics, which were not possible before.“ With a peak performance of 5.033 Petaflops, GCS system JUQUEEN at Jülich Supercomputing Centre is the first HPC system in Europe to pass the 5 Petaflops barrier.
