An interdisciplinary group of PSU faculty led by Feng Liu (CS) and comprising Christof Teuscher (ECE), Jay L Nadeau (Physics),  Bruno Jedynak (Math+Stat), Steve L Reichow (Chemistry), and systems architect William Garrick (OIT Research Computing Manager and Architect) has been awarded a two-year, $395,926 NSF grant for a high-performance GPU-based computing cluster.

The funding will allow PSU to acquire GPU-enabled servers and storage. Specifically, the proposed infrastructure includes 4 nodes with 4 NVIDIA Titan RTX and 768 GB RAM, 16 nodes with 4 RTX 2080 Ti, 12 of which with 192 GB RAM, and 4 with 384 GB RAM, and 480 TB usable storage. The requested resources will augment and enhance the existing computational resources at Portland State University and will benefit researchers as well as students.
