IBM's just announced that one of its Blue Gene/Q supercomputers will be heading to the University Of Melbourne. Its task? Intensive medical research. The Blue Gene/Q will be housed at the Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative (VLSCI) in Melbourne, and is expected to be up and running by mid next year. It'll provide a hefty 836 teraflops of computing power (to avoid the inevitable; yes, it could run Crysis) for the purposes of medical research. [VLSCI] Image: Argonne National Laboratory
