Lindgren was PDC's flagship supercomputing system before Beskow.

Lindgren was a Cray XE6 system, based on AMD Opteron 12-core “Magny-Cours” (2.1 GHz) processors and Cray Gemini interconnect technology. There were 16 racks and the system had a theoretical peak performance of 305 teraflops. When it started operation, Lindgren was ranked in 31st place among the 500 most powerful computer systems in the world ( Top500 list for June 2011 ). The system was named after the prolific and talented Swedish author Astrid Lindgren, who wrote many delightful children's books.
