4.13 Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - 64.500 Gflop/s


Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) is a joint project of Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh together with Westinghouse Electric Corporation. It is one of four national supercomputing centers funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, and a member of the National MetaCenter for Computational Science and Engineering.

PSC's four-fold mission is to (1) enable solutions to important problems in Science and Engineering by providing leading-edge computational resources to the national community; (2) advance computational science, computational techniques and the National Information Infrastructure; (3) educate researchers in high performance techniques and their utility; and (4) assist the private sector in exploiting high performance computing for their competitive advantage.
