Top 10 Fastest Supercomputers in the World

Supercomputers, these are computers that are designed to handle high-performance computing. These machines are equipped with large numbers of superfast processors and are mostly used for research, simulations, and other processes that involve massive amounts of data. Take a look at the world’s top ten fastest supercomputers as compiled by AIS.

Tianhe_2

Performance of these systems were measured using LINPACK Benchmark. Scope of the list includes supercomputers built from 2010 to 2013.

As you can see, the list is dominated by supercomputers built by the U.S. of A. with a total of five. Germany and China tie up with two each with the latter claiming the top spot with the Tianhe-2 supercomputer.

The Tianhe-2 has 16,000 nodes, each with two Intel Xeon Ivy Bridge processors and three Xeon Phi processors for a combined total of 3,120,000 computing cores.

    So I guess the Tianhe-2 is what the Chinese use to hack into US networks/websites. :P

    Yong speed ng #1 ay kasing doble pa ng #2.

    grabe naman yong #3 na super computer nag simulate ng nuclear test sa kanilang laboratory at walang gastos.

    sigh… yong China #1 may capability nito mag simulate hindi lang mga pirated product pati solar system at project Mars colony kaya yan at angkinin na nila “Made in China”.

      Tangi! Anong walang gastos, haller! Di mo ba naiimagine operating costs ng mga yan!? Kuryente pa lang na kailangan patakbuhin ng mga yan kulang ang isang siudad sa pagkukuhanan! Charr!!!

    While reading, I was like:”NICE! Ang lufet ng US. Ang daming supercomputers.” Then, biglang bumulaga yung TOP 1, “WOAAWW!! Pare! Yun yun eh!” haha :)

    Kakagawa pa lang naman. Hindi papatalo U.S for sure :) Kelan kaya ilalabas “TRANSFORMERS”? LOL just kidding haha :)

    Nice article by the way :)
