This week, Intel installed a supercomputer at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research in Pretoria, South Africa. Reuters reports that the computer’s processing power — optimally a trillion floating point operations per second — will be harnessed for general informatics applications in AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis research. The $1 million machine was donated by Intel and will be made available to local researchers free of charge.
