In this talk we present numerical simulations of N = 4 super Yang-Mills for 3 color gauge theory over a wide range of ’t Hooft coupling 5 ≤ λ ≤ 30 using a supersymmetric lattice action. By explicit computations of the fermion Pfaffian we present evidence that the theory possesses no sign problem and exists in a single phase out to arbitrarily strong coupling. Furthermore, preliminary work shows that Non-Abelian Coulomb potential extracted via Polyakov loop correlators shows the 1/R scaling and a dependence on square root of the 't Hooft coupling at large values of λ as expected from the holographic calculations.
