China Super Computer beat Europe and Japan

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 computer.
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 time.
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 November.
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.
