The new Mira supercomputer at the Argonne National Laboratory ranked No. 3 on the Top 500 list. Its a new IBM/Blue Gene/Q system and hit 10.51 Pflop/s on the Linpack benchmark from 705,024 SPARC64 processing cores placed it third on the list.
Mira is used by from hundreds of companies, universities, and federal, state and municipal agencies.
Here's an inside look at Mira.
SuperMUC, housed in at the Leibniz Supercomputing Center near Munich, Germany. contains155.000 cores and has a peak performance of 3 Petaflop/s. It's an IBM iDataplex system.
SuperMUC just began operations this month and is intended by be used by all European researchers to expand the frontiers of science and engineering.
