Tokyo Tech Orders Additional ClearSpeed Boards

ClearSpeed Technology and its Japanese distribution partner, Nissho Electronics, have been awarded an order to supply ClearSpeed Advance X620 accelerator boards to Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) for use in its Molecular Dynamics Simulation Acceleration System known as TSUBAME.
“As a next stage in the increased quality of service to our HPC users at our GSIC center at Tokyo Tech., we are procuring additional ClearSpeed acceleration cards from Nissho Electronics,” said Professor Satoshi Matsuoka of the Global Scientific Information and Computing Center (GSIC) of Tokyo Tech. “This was a natural choice, given our prior experience as Asia’s #1 supercomputer TSUBAME, the world’s first accelerated system to make the Top 10 in the Top500 list. The new cards will also be hosted by TSUBAME alongside the originals, greatly increasing our real-world problem-solving abilities, in areas such as materials science and life sciences.”


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
