The list of the world’s fastest Supercomputer has been published. Summit supercomputer is the best for this. Top 500 companies publish the list of the top 500 supercomputers in speed trials twice a year.
Top 500 published a report on the Linpack benchmark survey with the help of German and US experts. This report on the top 10 supercomputer in the list.
➤Top 10 world’s fastest Supercomputer List
Here is your top 10 fastest computer list by the Top 500 companies.
➤World’s fastest Supercomputer Details
This time I will tell you the details of these superfast computers. You will be surprised if the world knows about these computers.
US Department of Energy launches Summit Supercomputer Market in June 2019. It is now the most powerful and talented supercomputer in the world.
The system cost $200 million to build. It is the first supercomputer, specially designed for use in artificial intelligence applications. This supercomputer made by IBM is 9.5 x petaflop speed.
The Summit supercomputer provides scientists and researchers the opportunity to solve complex tasks in the fields of energy, artificial intelligence, human health and other research areas.
It has been used in Earthquake Simulation, Extreme Weather simulation using AI, Material science, Genomics and in predicting the lifetime of Neutrinos in physics.
IBM’s Sierra Supercomputer ranks second on the list of the fastest supercomputers. It is located in the Lawrence Livemore National Laboratory in the United States. It has a speed of 94.6 petaflop. (1 petaflop = 1 thousand teraflops or 1 million gigaflops).
Sierra is very similar in architecture to the Summit supercomputer built for the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The Sierra system uses IBM POWER9 CPUs in conjunction with Nvidia Tesla V100 GPUs.
China’s Sunway TaihuLight was at the top of the list in the top 500 as the world’s fastest and most powerful computing computer machine in the world. The supercomputer at the country’s National Super Computing Center is at number three on the list this year.
The supercomputer built by the National Research Center of Parallel Computer Engineering and Technology in China has a 93-petalflop speed.
The system runs on its own operating system, Sunway RaiseOS 2.0.5, which is based on Linux. The system has its own customized implementation of OpenACC 2.0 to aid the parallelization of code.
This is (Tianhe-2A -Milkyway-2A) fourth on the computer list. It is located in Guangzhou National Super Computer Center, China. The supercomputer built by the National University of Defense Technology of China has a 61.4-petalflop speed.
In response to the U.S. sanction, China introduced the Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer in 2016, which substantially outperforms the Tianhe-2 (and also affected the update of Tianhe-2 to Tianhe-2A replacing US tech), and now ranks fourth in the TOP500 list while using completely domestic technology including the Sunway manycore microprocessor.
The world’s fifth fastest supercomputer frontrunner at the Advanced Computing Center in Texas, USA. It uses the Zion Platinum processor as a C6420 supercomputer made by Dell. It has a speed of 23.5 petaflops.
Deployed in June 2019, Frontera is the 16th most powerful supercomputer in the world, and the fastest supercomputer on a university campus in the U.S.. Early user access began in June 2019, and the system entered full production in September 2019.
Up to 80% of the available hours on Frontera, more than 55 million node hours each year, will be made available through the NSF Petascale Computing Resource Allocation program.
Switzerland’s Piz Daint Supercomputer is ranked sixth on the list of the world’s fastest supercomputers. The supercomputer located at the Swiss National Super Computing Center in Lugano is essentially a Cray XAC50 supercomputer. As one of the most powerful systems in Europe, this supercomputer can work at a speed of 21.2.
The original Piz Daint Cray XC30 system was installed in December 2012. This system was extended with Piz Dora, a Cray XC40 with 1,256 compute nodes, in 2013. In October 2016, Piz Daint and Piz Dora were upgraded and combined into the current Cray XC50/XC40 system featuring Nvidia Tesla P100 GPUs.
➤Trinity world’s fastest Supercomputer
The United States Trinity Supercomputer ranks seventh in the list of fastest supercomputers in the world. It has a speed of 20.2 Petaflop. It was installed in Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory in the United States.
Trinity was built in 2 stages. The first stage incorporated the Intel Xeon Haswell processor while the second stage added a significant performance increase using the Intel Xeon Phi Knights Landing Processor. There are 301,952 Haswell and 678,912 Knights Landing processors in the combined system, yielding a total peak performance of over 40 PF/s (petaflops).
➤ABCI Supercomputer world’s fastest Supercomputer
Japan’s supercomputer ABCI is ranked eighth on the fastest supercomputer. It was established at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Japan. The AI bridging cloud infrastructure (ABCI) system, made by Fujitsu, has a speed of 19.9 petaflops.
The ABCI is planned to be available to Japanese corporations, small businesses, and researchers; reducing their dependence on foreign cloud computing providers such as Microsoft and Google.
➤Supermuc-NG world’s fastest Supercomputer
A supercomputer named SuperMUC-NG from Germany is on the list of top supercomputers. It is located in the Lebanese Super Computer Center. This supercomputer made by Lenovo uses an Intel Platinum Zion processor. It has a 19.5 PetaFlop speed.
SuperMUC (the suffix ‘MUC’ alludes to the IATA code of Munich’s airport) is operated by the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, a European centre for supercomputing. In order to house its hardware, the infrastructure space of the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre was more than doubled in 2012.
➤Lassen world’s fastest Supercomputer
Number 10 on the list of top supercomputers is the LaSanne system, located in the United States Lawrence Livemore National Laboratory. It has a 18.2 PetaFlop speed. IBM has made it as another computer as the Sierra system.
