Intel announces its presence in the world’s most powerful supercomputer
intel announces triumphantly that Tianhe-2 , the recently announced supercomputer developed in China, is the most powerful in the world, and is based on microprocessors xeon E5-2692 “Sandy Bridge-EP” Xeon Phi and parallel accelerators 31S1P “Knights Corner” of the Intel itself.
College a few days ago the National University of Defense Technology (China) began operating at super-computer Tianhe-2 (Milky Way 2), successor of Tianhe-1 , which even when not at full capacity, defeated the super-computer Titan (made by AMD Opteron CPUs and Nvidia Tesla K20X accelerators).
top500 organization today updated its list of the 500 most powerful super-computers in the world , which is led by Tianhe-2, which displaces the Titan to the second location in the list, with which Intel AMD robs the honorific post form the world’s most powerful supercomputer.
Intel also boasts that 80% of the 500 supercomputers on the list is based on the hardware, which is also present in 98% of new supercomputer that recently joined the list.
In the first five locations of the Top500 list are:
- Tianhe-2: 54902.4 TFlops / s.
- Titan: 17590 TFlops / s.
- Sequoia: 17173.2 TFlops / s.
- K Computer: 11280.4 TFlops / s.
- Look: 8586.6 TFlops / s.
