Abstract (English)

QPACE is a massively parallel and scalable supercomputer designed to meet the requirements of applications in Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics. The project was carried out by several academic institutions in collaboration with IBM Germany and other industrial partners. In November 2009 and June 2010
QPACE was the leading architecture on the Green 500 list of the most energy efficient supercomputers in the world.

Translation of the abstract (German)

QPACE ist ein massiv-paralleler und skalierbarer Supercomputer der speziell für Simulationen der Quantenchromodynamik auf dem Gitter entwickelt wurde. Das Projekt wurde von mehreren akademischen Instituten in Zusammenarbeit mit IBM Deutschland und weiteren industriellen Partnern umgesetzt. November 2009 und Juni 2010 erlangte QPACE den Titel energieeffizientester Supercomputer der Welt und führte die Green 500 Liste an.
