Supercomputers are like muscle cars for IT: Few of us have one, but boy they are fun to look at.IBM on Tuesday touted that its supercomputer built for the National Nuclear Security Administration's Los Alamos National Lab is the most powerful system in the world.
The SC07 supercomputing conference was a very interesting show for me this year and it was my first time attending this conference. Here are some more interesting products that I haven't covered yet all the way from the very high-end to entry-level HPC computers.
Updated 5:00PM - Intel extended its lead in microprocessors today by launching the world's first 45nm microprocessors. Along with the new "Penryn" 45nm processors being launched today, Intel is also launching the "Seaburg" chipset designed for the HPC (High Performance Computing) chipset which is timed perfectly with this week's supercomputing conference.
The term supercomputing typically conjures daunting images of large and expensive computer systems, coupled with complicated technology for scientific and engineering "number crunching". This article provides the first steps towards helping the rest of us in understanding what HPC involves, and what it means to us.
