The Prime FX is the main 'point of interest' in the lobby display (which is actually downstairs from the lobby). I have been to NEC a few times and in their Telecomms section they have a small museum on undersea/submarine cables and their rugby team!

Impressive hardware, really. Didn't know Fujitsu entered HPC?

Almost everything SPARC64 with a Sun or Oracle badge on it came from Fujitsu, most notable is the M class series such as the M9000. They have been this space for a while...

As of November 2012 Fujitsu had the third most powerful supercomputer in the Top 500 (top500.org): "Rounding out the top five systems are Fujitsu’s K computer installed at the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (AICS) in Kobe, Japan (No. 3)," a SPARC 64 with 705024 cores capable of peaking at 11280.4 TFlops... :shock:

Temporarily lost at sea...

World domination! Or something...

the top500 is to be enjoyed with caution tho since they only go for quantity. i remember them listing a powermac g5 and even a playstation cluster once and i guess nobody would classify those as "supercomputer" by far.
at one point they had a separate cluster section which was a very good idea imho but for whatever reason that didn't last long.

anyway that current fujitsu machine would qualify for sure :)

yep - one look at all that plumbing and you know it's a real supercomputer...

I took another visit to the Computer History museum at mountain view again last month, had a couple of hours to kill before my flight out of SFO => well worth a visit if you are ever in the area...
