  • Here's another look at Blue Gene/Q racks.

  • Japan's K computer held the title of "world's fastest" for a year until it was overtaken by IBM's Sequoia. Now, it's in second place. Here's a look inside.

    K computer reached 10.51 Pflop/s on the Linpack benchmark using 705,024 SPARC64 processing cores.

  • 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.

  • 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
