AMD said last week at SuperComputing 2003 that the AMD Opteron processor-based supercomputers have appeared in the TOP500 Supercomputer list.

The Number Six supercomputer, built by Linux Networx and in service at Los Alamos National Laboratory, comes in as the highest AMD Opteron processor-based system on the Top500 and operates at a maximal LINPAC performance rate of 8,051Gflop/s with a theoretical peak performance of 11,264 Gflop/s.

Additional AMD Opteron processor-based supercomputers making the TOP500 list include: an installation at Doshisha University's Intelligent Systems Design Laboratory in Kyoto, Japan and built by Visual Technology at number 93, a supercomputer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory designed by Linux Networx at number 116, and at number 247, a system built by RackSaver with Arima and Myricom, in service at AMD’s Developer Center in Sunnyvale, California.

Many research institutions and universities have embraced the stability and reliability of the AMD Athlon MP processor line, which offers leading in-class performance and also appears throughout the TOP500 list. It is interesting to note that there are five AMD Athlon MP-based supercomputers in the Top500 list now. This means that the supercomputer design-wins dynamics for AMD Opteron processors is significantly better than the dynamics of AMD Athlon MP CPUs – a very positive sign for AMD.
