SGI Altix 4700

The SGI Altix 4700 features 1024 dual-core Intel Itanium processors and 6,5 TB main memory. Communication is possible within the five partitions via the shared memory. The NumaLink4 is employed as an efficient connection network. Hence, the Altix is especially recommended for highly parallel and memory-intensive applications. MPI or OpenMP-programs using hundreds of processes achieve excellent performance on the Altix. It ranked number 49 in the Top500 list of the fastest computers of the world and is Germany´s third fastest system (November 2006) .
