Barence writes "On Monday, the world's seventh fastest supercomputer went live in Texas. Stampede is a Dell PowerEdge C8220 cluster packed with Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors: it has more than 6,000 compute nodes, more than 96,000 processing cores and 205TB of memory, for close to ten petaflops of peak performance. Built by the Texas Advanced Computing Center, it took two years to develop and will serve the needs of open science research. PC Pro sat down with TACC's director Jay Boisseau to find out what goes into building a supercomputer like Stampede, how everything is paid for, what can go wrong — and what happens to supercomputers when they retire."
