Tomen Corp. announced that the company has received an order from Fujitsu Ltd, to deliver a high-speed computer interconnect system conforming to InfiniBand - an interface specification for communications among multiple computers or between computers and peripheral equipment.

The system equipment is to be installed for the development of the "World Fastest Linux PC Cluster System," which has been awarded to Fujitsu by Japan's Institute of Physical and Chemical Research, known as Riken, for a supercomputing-grade cluster of Linux computers with a total of 2,048 CPUs capable of achieving 12.4 teraflops of computing performance.

The sale of this system will represent around $1.5 million to Tomen, with a targeted turnover of around $8 million for the next year.
