Print version Email story Tweet story
News The Renault Formula One (RF1) team has revealed details of how it will use one of the world's most powerful supercomputers in a bid to give its car designers a winning edge for the 2009 season.

The system embodies over 500 computer nodes that hold dual socket AMD Quad-core processors. Each node provides eight processing cores and 16GBytes of memory. The entire system has in excess of 4,000 cores and 8TBytes of memory.

Boeing and RF1 are working together in developing a CFD code that will benefit both industries. Pete Hoffman, director of Boeing's Phantom Works Research and Development division, believes that F1 represents a highly effective platform to drive forward advances in this field.
