The Truth About Top Supercomputers In The World

Supercomputer facts and statistics Infographics by The Truth About Top Supercomputers In The World IFLO Supercomputers are . those computers that have far greater processing power than others of its day; typically they use more than 1 core and are housed in large clean rooms CRAY-X/MP-48: 1980s with high air flow to permit cooling. Their typical uses are weather fore- casting, nuclear simulations and animations. CDC GG00: 1970 A single modern desktop PC is now more powerful than a ten-year-old supercomputer, and the design concepts that allowed past supercomputers to out-perform contempora- neous desktop machines have now been incorporated into commodity PCs. Currently, the Cray Jaguar is the fastest supercomputer in the World...

In February 2009, IBM also announced work on "Sequoia," which appears to be a 20 petaflops supercomputer. This will be equivalent to 2 million laptops (whereas Road- runner is comparable to a mere 100,000 laptops). It is slated for deployment in late 2011.
