Named for the king of the Danes, The Hrothgar Beowulf Cluster was the replacement for the Wiglaf Beowulf cluster.

Hrothgar used newer technology than Wiglaf, and was completed and operational by the end of 1995.

It was made from 16 Intel Pentium processor based PC's with fast Ethernet links, and delivered 17.5 Mflops sustained performance per node, resulting in a total sustained performance of 280 Mflops.
