Japan Lost Its Lead To U.S. On Having Most Powerful Supercomputer


On a recent press release by Top500, U.S. got the lead for having the world’s most powerful supercomputer replacing Fujitsu’s “K Computer” of Japan and now on the second in the list. Sequoia, an IBM-designed supercomputer housed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, hit processing speeds of 16.32 petaflops.


Fujitsu “K Computer”

Fujitsu’s “K Computer” is installed at the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (AICS) in Kobe, Japan. It held the No. 1 spot for a year on the previous two lists which Top500 compiles twice a year. The “K Computer” system runs at 10.51 Pflop/s on the Linpack benchmark using 705,024 SPARC64 processing cores.

The list will be the first report for the 2012 International Supercomputing Conference located in Hamburg, Germany and the 39th edition of the list. Will Japan‘s “K Computer” regain the No.1 spot on the next list update for 2012?
