  • 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.

  • Here is China top supercomputer which was built in 2010 and was the fastest supercomputer in November 2010. It is located at the National Supercomputing Center in Tianjin.

  • 10 Tf from a single core

    not part of a company so to speak, but I am deep in to Hardware Engineering, Quantum Mechanics and Electronics with Qualifications in all 4. I have a design that makes use of Molecular Computing and Electronics and will allow for speeds of up to 10.71 Terra flops per second. That is faster then Nvidea's best Tesla Card. the core size itself is no bigger then the size of a 555 chip W 1.7cm, L 2.42cm, D 0.3cm
