7. Numerical Simulator III, PRIMEPOWER HPC2500
The Numerical Simulator III project at NAL, also known as CeNSS, is a follow-up on the original Numerical Wind Tunnel and existing Numerical Simulator II. A parallel effort to the Earth Simulator, it became operational in October 2002. It is based on Fujitsu PrimePower hardware and a crossbar interconnect. An integral part of the NSIII is a visualization system with 32-CPU SGI Onyx 3400, and 4.6 m × 1.5 m display.
