¡Rio! gets an upgrade

¡Rio! recently received an upgrade with the help of CEE undergrad Michael Lanza (left) and PhD student Brandon Dillon (right). With the upgrade, ¡Rio! is now a cluster comprised of 132 enterprise-level servers containing 1,296 cores operating at 2.7 GHz. This configuration gives ¡Rio! a peak theoretical double-precision performance of 14 tera-FLOPS – a statistic that would have made it the world’s most powerful supercomputer in the year 2002. ¡Rio! is a part of the Baker Lab’s computational resource suite; read more about ¡Rio! here.
