As I disclosed in my one later post dated Sunday, May 20, 2007 I am posting a yet another post on fastest supercomputer of the world. The list was published during at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC ’07) in Dresden, Germany (http://www.supercomp.de) on June 27, 2007. Who else it can be other than BlueGene??
Yes, IBM BlueGene (http://top500.org/system/7747) installed at Lawrance Livermore National Laboratories, US (http://www.llnl.gov) topped on the list for the consequent forth time since its commissioning by delivering a stunning and steady 280.6 Teraflops! (Trillions of computations per second). In addition there were two other Supers which crossed the 100 Tflop mark -- the upgraded Cray XT4/XT3 at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, ranked No. 2 with a benchmark performance of 101.7 TFlops and Sandia National Laboratory’s Cray Red Storm system, which ranked third at 101.4 TFlops.
