The most recent top500 list has just been released at SC13 in Denver, and I'm pleased to say that 3 EPCC-hosted systems appear in the top 50:

  • The new ARCHER system is #19 and is the UK's fastest supercomputer.
  • DIRAC BlueGene/Q is #27.
  • HECToR is still #50, despite being very near the end of its life.

All these machines are located at the University of Edinburgh's Advanced Computing Facility. Our MSc in HPC students will move from HECToR to ARCHER in the coming months.
