SIGGRAPH, San Antonio, CA - NVIDIA® Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions announced that OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) has purchased and deployed more than 50 NVIDIA Quadro4 900 XGL workstation graphics boards to power a new cluster for volume rendering of graphics applications.
The Portland Group, Inc. (PGI) and OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) today announced that OSC has acquired 200 copies of PGI Workstation, PGI's suite of parallel Fortran, C and C++ compilers and tools for Linux workstations. The announcement was made from SC99, the world's largest conference for high performance computing sponsored by ACM SIGARCH and the IEEE Computer Society.
The Cold War may be over, but the need for well-trained government scientists and engineers lives on. The Ohio Supercomputer Center is helping the federal government keep its cadre of high performance computing specialists current on state of the art computers. And it's doing it right here in Ohio.

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) announces that it has installed a powerful new computer -- an IBM RISC System/6000* Scalable POWERparallel Systems * SP2. As a valuable supercomputing resource for universities and businesses across Ohio, OSC's goal is to provide its users with the best computing technology available. The IBM parallel computer joins an already impressive array of high-performance parallel and vector/parallel computing platforms available at the Center.

COLUMBUS, Ohio and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) and SGI (NYSE: SGI) announce the launch of a new cluster from SGI utilizing the Itanium-based Silicon Graphics® 750 system, making this cluster one of the fastest in the world.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will present Collaborations for the 21st Century -- a showcase of projects setting the tone for Ohio's future in high performance computing and communications -- at SC98: High Performance Networking and Computing, Nov. 7-13, in Orlando.
Software development specialists at the Ohio Supercomputer Center have released Local Area Multiprocessor (LAM) to the parallel processing and cluster computing community. LAM has been ported to several leading UNIX machines such as Sun, SGI, RS/6000, DEC APX and to Cray running UNICOS. LAM is freely available under a GNU license via anonymous ftp from tbag.osc.edu or from gopher at gopher.osc.edu. URL is gopher: //gopher.osc.edu:70/Software/Trollius.
A new, advanced service offered by the Ohio Supercomputer Center leverages the unique computing properties of the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) to provide a robust visualization environment to researchers in fields as diverse as biomedicine, electrosciences and the animation arts.
In an effort to create better trained surgeons, teaching professor Dr. Gregory Wiet and the Ohio Supercomputer Center have been working on a project known as the Validation Dissemination of Temporal Bone Dissection that looks at simulating surgery through computer visualization, applied force, and even changes in sound. Future surgeons are using this technology that allows for direct consequences to action and gives them opportunities to experience problems that may occur in a real surgery that they must react to quickly.
