China’s Tianhe-2 Caps Top 10 Supercomputers
“The Tianhe-2, a massive system that clocked 33.86 petaflops, or 33.86 thousand trillion floating point operations per second
Titan which is housed at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory executed 17.59 petaflops—a little over half of the Tianhe-2’s supercomputing muscle.
Built at China’s National University of Defense Technology, Tianhe-2 (also known as the Milky Way-2) consists 3.12 million computing cores. The machine is scheduled to be fully operational by the end of this year.”
I was glad to read this. Congratulations! Probably we can hope in some good news furthermore if China can do the things well.
