The Top 10 Supercomputers

The world’s fastest “supercomputer“ has a computing power of 122,300 teraflops, i.e. it can carry out 122,000 trillion floating point operations per second. While that only sounds like Chinese to the uninformed ear, Summit, the computer topping the current TOP500 ranking of supercomputers, is not located in China. Even though the far eastern country is one of the most important hubs for supercomputing, the United States, its direct competitor in the never-ending run for the world’s most powerful...
