The University of the Philippines-Diliman's Computational Science Research Center has a new supercomputer. The CSRC High Performance Computing Facility is a cluster of Pentium 4 and Xeon systems capable of dishing out 80 gigaFLOPs (billion floating point operations per second) of computational power. The 4.8-million peso supercomputer, which runs on Linux, will be used to model natural phenomena, among others.
