COSMOS IX arrives!
On the 4th of July 2012 the brand new Altix UV2000 system from SGI arrived at DAMTP.

The system, which is the largest shared-memory computer in Europe and the first SMP system in the world to be boosted by the Intel Xeon Phi co-processors later in the year, will be used to support research in cosmology, astrophysics and particle physics within the DiRAC distributed HPC Facility, funded by STFC and DBIS UK.

COSMOS Mk IX features 1856 Intel Xeon E5 processor cores (SandyBridge-EP) with 14.5TB of globally shared memory. It will also eventually feature 31 Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) co-processors, providing a hybrid hierarchical SMP/MIC computing platform. See more pictures here...
