LSU now has a new super computer, they are the first university in the country to get the new technology found in this computer.

The computer is named "pelican" and cost $600,000. It replaces the the older LSU super computer that was not fast enough to handle the new demand for this type of technology.

It is supposed to create jobs involving 3D graphics and other jobs heavily involving technology.

It is also supposed to help bring more students interested in technology to LSU.

It might help, but I'm not sure how much. The problem is that it won't take long before technology will pass it up and it won't be as impressive in the near future.
