Completed 400 Gflops Machine
400 Gflops ---- 8192 Nodes
Located in 1106 Pupin Labs, Columbia University
The QCDSP computers were designed and constructed between 1993 and 1998. Two
large QCDSP machines are operating in the Physics Department of Columbia University (400
Gflops peak) and the RIKEN BNL Research Center (600 Gflops peak).

Progress made in the evolution of the original C++ physics application code developed for
the QCDSP machines into a more portable system optimised for the QCDOC architecture and
incorporating the QCDAPI being developed by the U.S. SciDAC Lattice QCD Collaboration.
