We present the apeNEXT project which is currently developing a massively parallel computer with a multi-TFlops performance. Like previous APE machines, the new supercomputer is completely custom designed and is specifically optimized for simulating the theory of strong interactions, quantum chromodynamics (QCD). We assess the performance for key application(More)
