Tianhe-2 crown as the world’s most powerful supercomputer
At three years of the launch of Tianhe-1 supercomputer , the Chinese government launched its successor: Tianhe-2, which is crowned as the world’s most powerful supercomputer!
The supercomputer Tianhe-2 (also known as Milkyway-2) has been developed by the National University Chinese, and its specifications are:
- 16000 dual-socket nodes.
- 32000 Ivy Bridge intel xeon microprocessors.
- 48000 Intel Xeon Phi parallel accelerators “Knights Corner”.
- 1.4 petabytes of DDR3 ECC DRAM.
- Hybrid Transport interconnection Optoelectronics Technology.
- 12.3 petabytes of storage.
The supercomputer was tested with 14336 of his 16000 (at 89.6% of capacity) and still achieved an almost 31 PetaFlops (exactly 30.65 petaflops) on the Linpack benchmark, which ran for five hours.
It is expected that Tianhe-2 is complete just in time for the publication of the new Top 500 this June 17.
