Quote:
Zhou Xingming, an NUDT professor said the computer is "equipped with 6,144 Intel CPUs and 5,120 AMD GPUs (graphics processing units)," and was able to "store all 27 million books in the National Library of China four times."


The announcement was posted Thursday on several Chinese computer research websites. An official listing of the world's fastest supercomputers, the semiannual TOP500, is due to be issued Friday.


If verified, Tianhe-1A would be significantly faster than the current title holder, the U.S. Department of Energy's Cray XT5 Jaguar in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, which topped the list issued in June at 1.75 petaflops per second.


Chipmaker NVIDIA, better known for designing plug-in video cards bought by high-end computer gamers, said the supercomputer is powered by more than 7,000 of its graphics processor units.

And it really doesn't look that big either, but I'd still have to put an addition onto the house.

...if it weren't for the fact that nobody really knows just what kind of computing power NSA has in their underground facilities (except for NSA itself), I'd say that that Chinese super-c is definitely the fastest computer in the world.

As wonderful as this achievement is, it begs the question (also applicable to all super-computers developed by any nation): what purpose will it ultimately serve?

Probably a question best left to a different thread in a different forum.

Incredible technology. Thanks for posting the news, Anak.

Windows 7 on a Personal Supercomputer
Straightforward question. Will Windows 7 run on a personal cluster like the Cray CX1? I'm assuming yes, but it would only use one blade and ignore the rest, but I'm not sure. Any insights?
