F1Live.com: Only nine months after the launch of its ultra-modern wind tunnel, the Sauber Petronas today presented a new supercomputer for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) calculations to international media representatives at its headquarters in Hinwil. 'Albert', as the machine has been christened, is one of the most powerful in Formula One as well as the automotive industry as a whole. The supercomputer was built by the Swiss company Dalco and has a total of 530 AMD Opteron processors installed in High-Density Cooling Enclosures supplied by American Power Conversion (APC). The software is provided by Fluent. Sauber has established technology partnership agreements with all four companies.
