AMD powers the L-CSC cluster at the GSI research facility which achieved the number one position for most energy efficient supercomputers on the latest Green500™ List, released in November 2014. The L-CSC cluster is installed at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH research facility in Darmstadt, Germany, and is powered by AMD FirePro™ S9150 server GPUs.

The GSI cluster is powered by 600 AMD FirePro™ S9150 server GPUs and outperforms all other ranked clusters. With 5.27 GFLOPS-per-watt, the GSI L-CSC cluster using AMD FirePro S9150 server GPUs delivers 20 percent better efficiency than the top ranked cluster on the June 2014 Green500 List. The GSI L-CSC cluster enables Lattice Quantum Chromo Dynamics (Lattice QCD) computational research using one of the fastest OpenCL™ implementations for research applications in the world.
