IBM's time dominating the top of the supercomputing pile has ended for now.Although the Armonk giant may still hold the number one spot in the latest supercomputer Top 500 still it no longer holds the top five spots as it did last year .So well done to the people from Cray for clawing back the number two and number three positions. And surely the most surprising contender when it first appeared, Dell, is still there, clutching on to number eight position (down from six last year) and with SGI in number 10 spot, doing its but to stop IBM ruling the roost. So well done to IBM for holding six of the top 10 spots but stay on your toes, others are waiting for any sign of weakness.
