Abstract

We present the initial results from the FHPCA Supercomputer project at the University of Edinburgh. The project has successfully built a general-purpose 64 FPGA computer and ported to it three demonstration applications from the oil, medical and finance sectors. This paper describes in brief the machine itself - Maxwell - its hardware and software environment and presents very early benchmark results from runs of the demonstrators.
