IBM Supercomputer Hits New Top Speed

Abstract:
In a ceremony at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California Thursday, officials from the Department of Energy and IBM celebrated completion of the world's fastest supercomputer, and said IBM's Blue Gene/L system had doubled its previous performance. The new record of 280.6 teraflops, or trillion floating-point operations per second, surpasses a top speed of 136.8 teraflops that a half-complete version of the system achieved in June.

The Japanese government's ministry of science and technology plans to build a new supercomputer, which could operate at 10 petaflops, by 2011. Dennis Lam, a manager of high-performance computing technology at NEC Solutions America, says the forthcoming system will be highly specialized and designed to target applications in nanotechnology and biology research. "The Japanese government is interested in a system that can really open the door for nanotechnology," he says.
