The world’s fastest supercomputers

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.
