TOP500 SuperComputer Sites and Tianhe-1

This November 2010, the TOP500 website will finally publish the name of the fastest supercomputer in the world. Suspense is at its highest level. Will China get the top rank with its Tianhe-1 supercomputer? It would be the first time ever that a non-American and non-japanese supercomputer lab get this prize... times are changing...

Last June, Jaguar Cray XT5 won with 1759 teraflops. This November, Tianhe-1 from the National SuperComputer Center in Tianjin seems to be able of scoring an impressive computing rate of 2507 teraflops, which is far beyond any recorded performance.

Sysadmins, stay tuned on http://www.top500.org!
