Pawsey to build new $48m supercomputer


Massive upgrade to the WA research centre.

The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre is building a new $48 million supercomputer system in a bid to become a world leader of research computing.

Drawing its 50 petaFLOPS from over 200,000 CPU cores, the new Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Cray EX is a massive upgrade over Pawsey’s existing Magnus and Galaxy supercomputers which had a combined compute power of less than two petaFLOPS.

Funding for the project is drawn from a $70 million grant the government awarded to upgrade the centre in 2018.
