SuperMUC-NG is the name of the next-generation high-end supercomputer at the Leibniz-Rechenzentrum (Leibniz Supercomputing Centre) in Garching near Munich (the MUC suffix is borrowed from the Munich airport code). With more than 311,040 cores and a peak performance of 26.9 PFLop/s it will be one of the fastest supercomputers in the world.

Start of user operation of Phase 1 of the system is planned for January 2019.
