These following fastest computers in the world will help you to do your job, of course. Not only in common field, but also it’s very useful in specific field where you spend your work on, specially in the Department of Energy. And if you thought you PC was fast, wait until you see the fastest computer in the world can do. Every year, some magazines rank the world’s fastest computers of all. And below are the fastest of them. Check them out.
Tianhe-1A is one of the fastest computers in the world. It can run at
a sustained 2.5 petaflops (about a thousand trillion floating point
operations per second). It also has 186,369 cores and 229,376GB of RAM
and features an Nvidia chips which New York Times stated that when its
speed is down to its interconnect, this computer is still able to be
used in many other connections.
This computer is China’s supercomputer which is also currently the
world’s fastest super computer. The headquarter of the company of this
faster computer is located in Shenzhen’s National Supercomputing Center,
where it’s used by several universities and Chinese companies.
Jaguar is one of the fastest computers in the world. It has quite a
few cores which TOP500 stated that there are nearly a quarter of a
million cores since its most recent upgrade few years ago. This fastest
computer has about 224,164 cores which come courtesy of a whole bunch of
six-core Opteron chips. Its performance is a hefty 1.76 petaflops. Oak
Ridge, a National Laboratory where its headquarter is located, stated
that Jaguar is the world’s fastest supercomputer for unclassified

3. Dawning Nebulae
Dawning Nebulae is one of the fastest computers in the world. It was
launched in early 2010 and considered as the fastest supercomputer in
the world before having been beaten by Jaguar and Tianhe-1A. Its
performance uses 1.27 petaflops, about 2 times higher than its sibling,
the Nebulae. The company of this fastest computer in the world is also
located in the National Supercomputing Center in Shenzhen.
4. Tsubame 2.0
Tsubame is one of the fastest computers in the world. It peaks at 2.3
petaflops, with sustained performance of around 1.4 petaflops and has
Nvidia Fermi GPU as well as Intel CPUs. A project leader, Professor
Satoshi Matsuoka stated that this fastest computer in the world will be
really useful in climate and weather forecasting, biomolecular modelling
and tsunami simulations.
Hopper is one of the fastest computers in the world. It offers its
services to more than 3,000 researchers in the fields of climate
research, chemistry, new material development and other crucial fields.
It is working on the big stuffs based on its fields, including climate
change, clean energy, astrophysics and particle physics. The headquarter
of the company of this fastest computer in the world is located in the
U.S Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing
Center. No wonder that its function is related to climate change, etc.
Tera-100 is one of the fastest computers in the world and is also the
first petaflop-scale supercomputer to be designed and built in Europe.
When it was launched, some media press said that its capacity to
transfer information is equivalent to a million people watching
high-definition films simultaneously.
This fastest computer was built around Intel Xeon 7500 processors.
Its successor to 2005′s Tera 100 is about 20 times faster and seven
times more energy efficient as its predecessor. Its mission is to help
guarantee the reliability of Europe’s nukes.
Roadrunner is one of the fastest computers in the world. It was the
first supercomputer to crack the petaflop barrier for sustained
performance, but it’s 1.04 petaflop speed means it fell to seventh place
in just two years. This fastest computer in the world was built by IBM
for the U.S Department of Energy and was designed to work out whether
the U.S’ nuclear weapons would remain safe as they age.
Kraken is one of the fastest computers in the world. The National
Institute for Computational Sciences reported that it’s best suited to
jobs which use “at least 512 cores” and has about 112,895 computer cores
spread across 9,408 nodes. The purpose of this fastest computer is to
help solving the world’s greatest scientific challenges, such as
understanding the fundamental of matter and unlocking the secrets to the
origin of the universe.
Jugene is one of the fastest computers in the world. It was designed
by German company for solving low power consumption as well as high
performance. It’s also been involved in some interesting projects
including trying to work out how DVDs work. According to Scientific
Computing, it’s improving our understanding of “the processes involved
in writing and erasing a DVD”, which should lead to storage media that
works better, lasts longer and provides higher capacity.
Cielo is one of the fastest computers in the world. It’s used for
“classified operations” by the U.S National Nuclear Security
Administration. This fastest computer is also very useful for nuclear
science which are a match-made in heaven. It has its 6,704 computing
nodes and will be upped to 9,000. The memory of this fastest computer will go from 221.5 TB to around 300TB.
