High Performance Computing at UHD

High Performance Computing, or HPC, is the application of "supercomputers" and parallel computing to computational problems that are either too large for standard computers or would take too long. A desktop computer generally has a single processing chip, commonly called a CPU. An HPC system, on the other hand, is essentially a network of nodes, each of which contains one or more processing chips, as well as its own memory and specialized processors.
