This is the purpose of the NSF TeraGrid machines.

There is currently NCSA Lincoln which has S1070's and there will be several
new GPU based machines coming online shortly. I have run AMBER on NCSA
Lincoln and it works great.

You can get a startup allocation (the size varies by machine by 30,000 core
hours is typical) with just a CV and an abstract. If you want more then you
need to submit a 7 page proposal. Submissions are open every 3 months for a
1 year allocation. (

All the best
