China Super Computer beat Europe and Japan
China supercomputer that have second ranked fastest machines beat
Europe and Japan system. China is forecast to have the fastest super
Dawning nebulae that exist at the National Supercomputing Center in
Shenzhen, China reached a speed of 1.27 petaflops computing, equivalent
to one thousand trillion mathematical operations each second, in the
latest ranking of the world’s 500 fastest computers.
The ratings are published for the public on Monday (31 / 5) and at the International Supercomputer Conference, Hamburg, Germany.
Supercomputers are used by scientists and experts to solve diverse
problems, such as weather simulation or automotive design. The fastest
computer in the world today is based Jaguar Cray supercomputer at Oak
Ridge National Laboratory, Tennesssee. Last November, this computer has
been measured sebedar 1.74 petaflops.
In order of ranking in the previous year, China was in fifth position
for the fastest computer, a system based on the National Supercomputing
Center in Tianjin, China, where the machine is ranked seventh this
United States seem still dominates supercomputer, in which this
country with the most machines in the top 500 list. United States has
282 supercomputer into the list of 500 fastest computers in the world,
and this amount increased from 227 when combined in this ranking last
On the other hand, China seems to intensely challenging American
domination. There have been some estimates that China will make systems
based on components designed in China in June. Nebule based on chips
from Intel and Nvidia.
This new system based on microprocessor yagn-designed and
manufactured in China, which diharakan completed by the end of the year.
According to experts and researchers, the new machines could become the
world’s fastest machines.
“I would not be surprised if at the end of this year they exceeded
the power of the state combined scientific computers in Europe and get
first position in 500 big,” said Jack Dongarra, a computer scientist at
the University of Tennessee and one of the researchers who compiled the
rankings twice in year.
