Western Australia is officially home to one the world’s greenest and most powerful supercomputers, with the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre’s Setonix today named in the globally recognised Green500 and Top500 lists.
Setonix, the scientific name for quokka, was recognised as the fourth greenest supercomputer in the world.
It also named as the most powerful public research supercomputer in the Southern Hemisphere, ranking 15 in the global Top500.
The rankings were announced at the international supercomputing conference SC22 in Texas.
At peak performance, Pawsey’s newest supercomputer will provide massively parallel computing power, equivalent to hundreds of thousands of standard computers working in unison for research, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
