World's Fastest supercomputer

submitted on October 28, 2010 by vectra5 in "Products / Gadgets"
China is set to trump the US to take the number one spot for the fastest supercomputer ever made in a survey of the world's zippiest machines, it was reported Thursday.

Tianhe-1, meaning Milky Way, has a sustained computing speed of 2,507 trillion calculations per second, making it the fastest computer in China on a list published Thursday.

But it is also 1.4 times faster that the world's current fastest ranked supercomputer in the US, housed at a national laboratory in Tennessee, according to the New York Times.

    Actually, the U.S. is already currently developing a computer to surpass China's.



    Rumor has it that it will also be capable of playing a mean game of chess.
