Hawk is the flagship supercomputer of the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart and one of Europe's fastest computing systems. Designed with the needs of HLRS's users in mind, Hawk is optimized to provide large-scale computing power for complex simulations. Its CPU-based architecture also includes a GPU partition that is suitable for high-performance data analytics and artificial intelligence applications, and for hybrid workflows that combine high-performance computing and AI.
With a theoretical peak performance of 26 Petaflops, Hawk debuted in 2020 at #16 on the Top500 List.
Funding for HLRS's Hawk supercomputer is provided by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry for Science, Research, and the Arts and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research through the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing.
