A Supercomputer Equal to 60 000 PCs

While an ordinary PC would need more than 600 years to compute all of the impact simulations performed in the development of the ŠKODA KODIAQ, the ŠKODA Data Centre uses a supercomputer that could do the same job in a matter of months. How exactly?

Now, you might be asking yourself what exactly a supercomputer is. Technically speaking, a supercomputer integrates a large number of highly powerful computers into a single unit whose individual parts communicate with each other via high-speed networks. To give you a sense of scale, the power of its hardware is equivalent to that of approximately 60,000 ordinary PCs. The supercomputer in ŠKODA Data Centre is the most powerful non-governmental computing centre in Central and Eastern Europe. Following its scheduled expansion this year, the supercomputer’s energy consumption is equal to the annual power generated by a small hydroelectric plant. The system is designed to perform multiple complex calculations simultaneously.
