The HPC Competence Center (HPC CC) was established by the Governmental Agency for IT Development in 2020.  It is responsible for promoting the High Performance Computing(HPC) and introducing the HPC infrastructure to potential academic and industrial users. Providing access to supercomputers, and giving user support are among our top priorities. Our experts assess the incoming project applications and manage the appropriate allocation of national HPC capacities, which must be in line with the expected scientific impact of the research to be carried out. In addition, the Competence Center maintains contact with users and international professional partners and represents the Hungarian HPC infrastructure and community in international professional forums.

The mission of the HPC Competence Center is to expand the national HPC community and integrate it into the international ecosystem.

The performance of 50,000 laptops in one supercomputer – Hungary’s most powerful supercomputer the Komondor has arrived.
With a performance of 5 petaflops, the newest and most powerful supercomputer of our country, Komondor, debuts in the ranking of the world's TOP 500 supercomputers. The system operated by the Governmental Information Technology Development Agency (KIFÜ) will soon be available to users after the tests.
