Iowa State University computer powers 17 new projects
AMES, Iowa (AP) _ Iowa State University says a powerful new computer on campus is producing data for 17 research projects. The school says the machine is capable of more than 183 trillion calculations per second. It has a total memory of more than 38 trillion bytes.
Professors say the computer's high performance will help expand science research at the university. It's assisting in 17 research projects from eight school departments.
The computer, named Cyence, has been running since July. It includes 12 black cabinets and rows of blue lights and it is located in the basement of the Durham Center. A $1.8 million grant from the National Science Foundation helped purchase the computer. Other school departments helped chip in $800,000. The school is already looking into resources for a second high performance computer.
