U.S. Army project

in October of 2004.

"The calculations we need to generate for this project involve a lot of matrix manipulations and the vector processors on the G5 are excellent for these types of calculations. Once we had decided to move forward with the G5 Xserves for this project, Apple had recommended that we contact Small Tree Communications for information on InfiniBand and how it could help enhance our system's performance. Additionally, we visited the Virginia Tech Terascale Computing Facility to study their Apple-based InfiniBand cluster and were amazed at the results they were able to achieve" said Dr. Lewis Johnson, assistant professor of physics at Florida A-and-M.
