GAMESS-UK is currently available on a wide range of supercomputers, servers, workstations and commodity-based systems. Parallel versions are available on many platforms and compilation with a variety of different compilers is often supported. A summary of the most popular options available is below (many other ports for older systems are available and ports for newer systems can be made available if we can be granted access to a specimen system).
