MINSK, 20 July (BelTA) – A production prototype of an office supercomputer has been developed in Belarus, BelTA learned from Sergei Kruglikov, Deputy Director General for Science and Innovations of the United Informatics Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus.
The production prototype has already gone through preliminary tests. Its peak performance exceeds that of the engineering prototype – at least 15 teraflops instead of 10 teraflops. “The available memory has been expanded up to 6TB. The cooling system works well. We are now getting ready for acceptance tests scheduled for September,” said Sergei Kruglikov.
Once the production prototype passes the acceptance tests, the supercomputer will be made in small batches. “We are studying the potential market and consumers. There is already some interest in our product,” said the official.
Belarusian scientists have also developed a supercomputer for data centers. Its production prototype has gone through preliminary tests. This model will be installed in the national supercomputer center, which is a branch of the United Informatics Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus.More about Society
