In the list of the most powerful supercomputers, China has more machines than the United States
Supercomputers are massive computing devices used for extremely complex computational applications such as quantum physics, weather forecasting, engine design and aircraft, reconstruction World historical events and the calculation of the probability of exploding old atomic weapons are used. According to the Top 500 report, the total efficiency of 500 supercomputers in the world is 1.56 exaflops (FLOPS). Flops is the unit of measurement of the speed of data processing by a computer, and each teraflops is equivalent to one trillion (10 to the power of 12) floating point operations per second. Of the top 500 supercomputers in the world, 29 are located in Japan, 19 in France, 18 in Great Britain, 14 in Germany, 13 in Ireland and the Netherlands, 8 in Canada, and 5 in Singapore.
According to Top 500, Intel makes the processors for 96% of the world’s supercomputers. In terms of energy consumption, Japan’s Shoubu system B is the world’s most efficient supercomputer.
- Summit was officially named the world’s fastest supercomputer
- Frontier is expected to be built by AMD and Cray as the world’s fastest supercomputer
The world’s fastest supercomputer named Frontier and Cray and AMD technology and worth 600 million dollars will be unveiled in the United States in 2021. Frontier will be able to perform 1.5 quintillion calculations per second. This level of capability, equivalent to 1.5 exaflops, would make it the world’s most powerful supercomputer, according to the US Department of Energy in May of this year.
After that, the enterprise arm of HP under the name of Hewlett Packard Enterprise or HPE announced that it will increase the power of its supercomputer with the help of Krai. Krai is the manufacturer of 39 supercomputers in the list of the top 500 supercomputers in the world; While the 40 devices in this list were made by HPE. Lenovo is at the top of this list with 173 supercomputers, and Inspur is in second place with 71 supercomputers.
Nvidia on Monday introduced the DGX SuperPOD supercomputer, which is considered the 22nd fastest computer in the world. This supercomputer will be used to train neural network algorithms to build self-driving cars.
