ASCI Blue Pacific


ASCI Blue Pacific

ASCI Blue Pacific was a supercomputer that was installed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, CA. The computer was a collaboration between IBM Corporation and Lawerence Livermore Lab. It was installed at the end of 1998.

It was an IBM RS6000 SP "massively parallel processing" system. It contained 5,856 PowerPC 604e microprocessors. Its theoretical top performance was 3.9 teraflops.

It was built as a stage of the Accelerated Strategic Computing Initiative (ASCI) started by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Nuclear Security Administration to build a simulator to replace live nuclear weapon testing following the moratorium on testing started by President George H. W. Bush in 1992 and extended by Bill Clinton in 1993.
