    Watch the construction of Australia’s largest supercomputer

      Watch the timelapse video of the Fujitsu Primergy cluster high-performance supercomputer constructed at the National Computational Infrastructure. Click here to view the video. The machine has: 57,000 cores = 15,000 home PC's 160 terabytes of RAM = 40,000 home PC's 10 petabytes of hard disc = 10,000 PC hard drives 1,200 teraflops of peak computational performance = 5 months worth of calculations by 1 billion people armed with calculators, in just 1 second. 9 terabyes of network = 9 million home internet bandwidth connections
