IBM Sequoia: The world’s fastest supercomputer
Until yesterday, the supercomputer Fujitsu Computer K held the crown of world’s fastest supercomputer with a capacity of 10.51 petaflops and a total consumption of 12.66 megawatts, crown IBM snatches today with its new Sequoia supercomputer.
IBM Sequoia supercomputer performance crown conquest with an output of 16.32 petaflops and consumption of 7.9 megawatts, and is comprised of 6144 racks, each consisting of 16 nodes, each node has 32 compute cards powered by an IBM power microprocessor with 16 cores (45nm) accompanied by 16GB of DDR3 ECC memory, ie the monstrous figure of 1,572,864 + 98304GB core IBM Power DDR3 ECC memory. All this enormous computing power is governed by the operating system Linux (Compute Node Linux + Red Hat Enterprise Linux).
Fujitsu Computer is known that K has an operating cost of $ 10 million a year just in electricity, so IBM Sequoia looks like a great choice for power and fuel economy.
