AMD is using some of its most powerful tech to beat Covid-19

AMD and Penguin Computing have announced that they had teamed up with leading US universities for a supercomputing research project that will study the SARS-CoV-2 virus as well as the COVID-19 disease.  

Under the terms of the deal, AMD and Penguin Computing will provide access to an HPC cluster located at Penguin to researchers from MIT, NYU, and Rice. The researchers are expected to use the supercomputer for pandemic-related workloads, such as genomics, vaccine development, transmission science, and modeling.
