In this video, KRQE reports that the controversial Encanto supercomputer may be split up among New Mexico’s three research universities. Purchased in 2008 for $11 Million, the supercomputer did not bring new business to the state as promised and racked up a stack of unpayed bills. The host datacenter for the system is owned by Intel and has been targeted for demolition.

Editor’s note: John West, former owner of insideHPC called the Encanto business model into question as far back as 2008.
