  • The new supercomputer behind the US nuclear arsenal

    8:01

    “Sierra” was just crowned the second-most powerful supercomputer on the planet. And while most of its peers use their power for climate simulations, astrophysics, and other civilian work, Sierra is purpose-built for an entirely different mission: nuclear weapons. We took a tour of this massive system, and found out why the US builds supercomputers to support its nuclear arsenal.

    If you need to model things like the worlds weather, nuclear reactions, molecular dynamics or simulate the first few seconds after the big bang, you’re going to need some pretty serious computing power but just how much more powerful are the top 10 supercomputers compared to the PC on your desktop or the latest iPad Pro for example.

    A FLOP is a calculation that would be either adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing 2 numbers with decimal points in them.
    For example, 10.545 multiplied by 6.387 would be a single FLOP. Modern computers can do this billions of times per second.
    At the time of making this video Feb 2016 the latest iPad Pro with the A9x dual core cpu is capable of about 1.5 gigaflops, that’s 1.5 thousand million FLOPS per second

    Typical $1000 pc with a single Intel 5820 6 core CPU is capable of around 100 GigaFLOPS that’s 66 times more that the iPad pro


    Because supercomputers are so much powerful they are measured in PetaFLOPS. 1 PetaFLOP is equal to 1000 TeraFLOPs and 1 TeraFLOP is = 1000 GigaFLOPS and remember our PC was 100 GigaFLOPS and the Ipad Pro 1.5 GigaFLOPS

    A petaflop is equal to about one million billion calculations per second.
    10 Stampede super computer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, United States
    it has a maximum Linpack performance of 5.1 PFLOPS, that’s
    That's equivalent to 51,000 of our PC’s or 3.4M iPad pro’s. It has 462,462 processing cores, 192 Terabytes of RAM and consumes a maximum of 4.5 Mw of power

    9 Shaheen II - Cray XC40 , at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia
    it has a maximum Linpack performance of 5.5 PFLOPS.
    Thats equivalent to 55,000 of our PC’s or 3.66M iPad pro’s.
    It has 196,608 processing cores, 790 Terabytes of RAM and consumes a maximum of 2.8 Mw of power.

  • Top 10 Fastest Supercomputer In The World

    11:56

    - A supercomputer is a computer with a high level of performance compared to a general-purpose computer. The performance of a supercomputer is commonly measured in floating-point operations per second (FLOPS) instead of million instructions per second (MIPS).

    - From MB’s to GB’s, what is the maximum power of your computer or you heard of someone? We can bet it will be in Gigabytes only.
    - A computer of high-performance power is called Supercomputer. Performance of the supercomputers is measured in floating-point operations per seconds (FLOPS) instead of million instructions per second (MIPS)

    - Did you know if our Brain was a computer, it could perform 38 Trillion operations a second? That’s 500 times more than the world’s fastest supercomputer.

  • What Is A Supercomputer?

    3:02

    China held the lead for the last 5 years, but the United States now has the world's fastest supercomputer. The machine, called Summit, was built for Oak Ridge National Laboratory in partnership with IBM and NVidia, and is designed for AI applications.

    Today's supercomputers are made up of thousands of connected processors, and their speed has grown exponentially over the past few decades. The first supercomputer, released in 1964, was called the CDC 6600. It used a single processor to achieve 3 million calculations per second. While that may sound impressive, it is tens of thousands of times slower than an iPhone.

    The Lab Director of Oak Ridge, Thomas Zacharia, says, I've always thought of supercomputing as a time machine, in the sense that it allows you to do things that most other people will be able to do in the future. As he explains, smartphones today are more powerful than the supercomputers used in the 1990s to work on the Human Genome Project.

  • Top 10 Fastest Supercomputer In The World

    2:40

    For the fifth consecutive time, Tianhe-2, a supercomputer developed by China’s National University of Defense Technology, has retained its position as the world’s No. 1 system, according to the 45th edition of the twice-yearly TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers. Tianhe-2, which means Milky Way-2, led the list with a performance of 33.86 petaflop/s (quadrillions of calculations per second) on the Linpack benchmark.

    At No. 2 was Titan, a Cray XK7 system installed at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Titan, the top system in the United States and one of the most energy-efficient systems on the list, achieved 17.59 petaflop/s on the Linpack benchmark.

    The only new entry in the Top 10 supercomputers on the latest list is at No. 7—Shaheen II is a Cray XC40 system installed at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia. Shaheen II achieved 5.536 petaflop/s on the Linpack benchmark, making it the highest-ranked Middle East system in the 22-year history of the list and the first to crack the Top 10.

    The other nine systems in the top 10 were all installed in 2011 or 2012, and this low level of turnover among the top supercomputers reflects a slowing trend that began in 2008.

    A detailed analysis of the latest TOP500 list will be presented Monday, July 13, at the 2015 International Supercomputing Conference in Frankfurt, Germany. At that time, the full list will also be published at TOP500.org.

    Although the United States remains the top country in terms of overall systems with 233 (up from 231 in November 2014), this number is down from 265 on the November 2013 list. The U.S. is nearing its historical low number on the list.
    Other highlights from the 45th list

    Total combined performance of all 500 systems has grown to 361 Pflop/s, compared to 309 Pflop/s last November and 274 Pflop/s one year ago. This increase in installed performance also exhibits a noticeable slowdown in growth compared to the previous long-term trend.
    There are 68 systems with performance greater than 1 petaflop/s on the list, up from 50 last November.
    The No. 1 system, Tianhe-2, and the No. 7 system, Stampede, use Intel Xeon Phi processors to speed up their computational rate. The No. 2 system, Titan, and the No. 6 system, Piz Daint, use NVIDIA GPUs to accelerate computation.
    A total of 88 systems on the list are using accelerator/co-processor technology, up from 75 on November 2014. Fifty-two (52) of these use NVIDIA chips, four use ATI Radeon, and there are now 33 systems with Intel MIC technology (Xeon Phi). Four systems use a combination of Nvidia and Intel Xeon Phi accelerators/co-processors.
    Ninety-seven percent of the systems use processors with six or more cores and 87.8 percent use eight or more cores.
    HP has the lead in the total number of systems with 178 (35.6 percent) compared to IBM with 111 systems (22.2 percent). Last November, HP had 179 systems and IBM had 153 systems. In the system category, Cray remains third with 71 systems (14.2 percent).

    U.S. Launches The World’s Most Powerful Supercomputer: 200,000 Trillion Calculations Per Second:

    AMERICA’S NEW SUPERCOMPUTER BEATS CHINA’S FASTEST MACHINE TO TAKE TITLE OF WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL

    The US Again Has The World's Most Powerful Supercomputer

    World's Most Powerful Supercomputer


    The US just grabbed back the crown from China with the AI-focused Summit.

    Behold Summit, a new supercomputer capable of making 200 million billion calculations per second. It marks the first time in five years that a machine from the United States has been ranked as the world’s most powerful.

    The specs for this $200 million machine defy comprehension. Built by IBM and Nvidia for the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Summit is a 200 petaflop machine, meaning it can perform 20 quadrillion calculations per second. That’s about a million times faster than a typical laptop computer. As the the New York Times put it, a human would require 63 billion years to do what Summit can do in a single second. Or as stated by MIT Technology Review, “everyone on Earth would have to do a calculation every second of every day for 305 days to crunch what the new machine can do in the blink of an eye.”

    The machine, with its 4,608 servers, 9,216 central processing chips, and 27,648 graphics processors, weighs 340 tons. The system is housed in a 9,250 square-foot room at Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s facility in Tennessee. To keep this machine cool, 4,000 gallons of water are pumped through the system. The 13 megawatts of energy required to power this behemoth could light up over 8,000 US homes.

    Summit is now the world’s most powerful supercomputer, and it is 60 percent faster than the previous title holder, China’s Sunway TaihuLight. It’s the first time since 2013 that a US-built computer has held the title, showing the US is keeping up with its main rival in this area, China. Summit is eight times more powerful that Titan, America’s other top-ranked system.,

  • The World’s Most Powerful Supercomputer Is An Pure Beast

    2:03

    The World’s Most Powerful Supercomputer Is An Pure Beast

    With a well-defined purpose, supercomputers have emerged in recent years to assist in solving complex, time-consuming calculations.

    Top of the list of the fastest and most powerful have been in the hands of China, but a new leader has arrived. The Summit is now the fastest and most powerful supercomputer.

    The Summit was unveiled this week and is the result of a partnership between IBM and ORNL, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory of the US Department of Energy.

    The fastest supercomputer on the planet

    Its computing power is so high that it can double the performance of the previous leader of the 500 most powerful supercomputers. According to IBM and ORNL, the Summit can perform 200 quadrillion calculations per second (200 followed by 15 zeros) or, using measures applied to supercomputers, 200 petaflops.

    According to its creators, all this computing power will be used to increase the power of artificial intelligence techniques that we begin to see in our daily lives.
    Dream hardware in a super machine

    In order to provide all this processing power, the Summit consists of 4608 servers, each with 2 IBM Power9 processors, each with 22 cores and 6 Nvidia Tesla V100 GPUs. In total, the system has 10 petabytes of memory.

    For its operation, the Summit uses 15 thousand litres of water per hour, for cooling. This whole system occupies an area equivalent to 2 tennis courts.
    The US recovers top of supercomputer list

    Although not yet official, the Summit will certainly be the new leader in the top 500 fastest supercomputers.

    This new structure also brings the US back to the top of scientific computing. Since 2012 this list was dominated by Chinese systems and other Asian countries.

    This is an area that is still growing and where many new machines are expected to emerge in the coming times, thus increasing the available computing capacity.

  • Top 3 most ‪Powerful‬ ‪Supercomputers‬ in the World

    53

    . A supercomputer is not simply a fast or very large computer: it works in an entirely different way, typically using parallel processing instead of the serial processing that an ordinary computer uses. Instead of doing one thing at a time, it does many things at once.
    So,Here is a list of top 3 most ‪#‎powerful‬ ‪#‎supercomputers‬ in the world, including the new supercomputer ‪#‎Tianhe‬ which has been introduced by ‪#‎China‬! For more such amazing videos visit here:

  • Chinas Tianhe-2 retains worlds most powerful supercomputer

    1:10

    China's Tianhe-2 supercomputer has retained its position as the world's most powerful system for the sixth consecutive time.

    That's according to a biannual Top500 list of supercomputers released Monday.

    Tianhe-2, or Milky Way-2, with a performance of 33.86 petaflops per second, was developed by China's National University of Defense Technology and deployed at the National Supercomputer Center in Guangzhou.

    It has held the title since June 2013.

    The Chinese system is almost twice as fast as the next on the list, Titan of the U.S. Department of Energy, which has a performance of 17.59 petaflops per second.

    In fact, there has been no change among the ranking of the world's top5 supercomputers since June 2013 in the latest edition of the closely watched list.

    According to the editor of the report, the top five computers are very powerful and expensive.

    And it will take perhaps another year before a new system enters the top five.

    The Top500 list is considered one of the most authoritative rankings of the world's supercomputers.

    It is compiled on the basis of the machines' performance on the Linpack benchmark by experts from the United States and Germany.

    The 10 Most Powerful Supercomputers

    For the first time, a supercomputer based in the Middle East has appeared in the top 10 of TOP500’s most powerful supercomputers list, published earlier this month.
    According to the creators of the list, the rate of growth in global computing power is slowing down. Relatively few supercomputers have been switched on in the last few years, in comparison with a decade ago. There is a higher number of older supercomputers in the list than ever before, with nine systems in the top 10 installed before 2012.
    The total combined performance of the top 500 computers has grown to 363 Pflop per second (a petaflop is the ability of a computer to do one quadrillion floating point operations per second) compared with 309 Pflop per second six months ago and 274 Pflop per second a year ago. This increase demonstrates a significant slowdown in growth, compared to the previous long-term trend.

    1. Tianhe-2 – China
    The Tianhe-2 (Milky Way-2), built by China’s National University of Defence Technology (NUDT) for the National Supercomputer Center in Guangzho. It’s the most powerful computer in the world and performs at 33.86 petaflop/s (Pflop/s) on the Linpack benchmark.
    The system has 3,120,000 computing cores made up from 16,000 computer nodes, each comprising two Intel Ivy Bridge Xeon processors and three Xeon Phi coprocessor chips.

    2. Titan – United States
    The Titan computer is a Cray XK7 system used by the United States Department of Energy at their Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The former top-ranked Jaguar supercomputer was upgraded in 2012 to become the then most powerful computer (until the Tianhe machine overtook it).
    The system performs at 17.59 Pflop/s using 261,632 NVIDIA K20x cores.

    3. Sequoia – United States 
    The Sequoia computer is based on the now unsupported IBM BlueGene framework. It has been used to make key advances in climate, astronomy and energy application areas.
    Located in California’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the Sequoia platform has achieved 17.17 Pflop/s and uses 1,572,864 cores.

    4. K Computer – Japan
    The K computer was manufactured by Fujitsu at the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (AICS) in Kobe, Japan.
    This system hit 10.51 Pflop/s and uses 705,024 SPARC64 processing cores.

    5. Mira – Unites States
    Also built around the BlueGene architecture, the Mira is one of the older computers on the list. Primarily used by the Unites States Department of Energy (and now housed at the Argonne National Laboratory outside Chicago), it is being succeeded by the upcoming Aurora supercomputer.
    The Mira computer has peaked at 8.59 Pflop/s and uses 786,432 cores.

    6. Piz Daint – Switzerland
    The Piz Daint, a Cray XC30 system, is the most powerful computer in Europe. It’s installed at the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) in Lugano, Switzerland.
    Piz Daint achieved 6.27 Pflop/s on the Linpack benchmark, using 73,808 NVIDIA K20x accelerator cores.

    7. Shaheen II – Saudi Arabia
    The Shaheen II is the newest computer in the top 10 list. Based around a Cray XC40 system, it went live in 2015 and is the only computer from the region in the top 10. It’s located at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology.
    The platform has performed at 5.536 PFlop/s and uses 196,608 Intel Xeon E5-2698v3 cores.

    8. Stampede – United States
    The Stampede computer is a Dell PowerEdge C8220 system based around interlinked powerful desktop computers.
    It’s based at the Texas Advanced Computing Center and has reached 5.17 Pflop/s.

    9. Juqueen – Germany
    The only other Europe-based computer, housed at the Forschungszentrum Juelich in Germany, is based on the older BlueGene architecture from IBM. It has reached 5.01 Pflop/s.

    10. Vulcan – United States
    The Vulcan computer is another IBM BlueGene and is installed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, along with No 3, the Sequoia. It has reached a speed of 4.29 Pflop/s.
    President Obama has called for the US to build the world’s fastest computer by 2025 – one that would be 20 times faster than the current fastest, China’s Tianhe-2. It would perform complex simulations and calculations to aid scientific research and national security projects. Currently, the US has almost half of the top 500 fastest supercomputers, but loses out to China when it comes to the top individual spot.

  • Worlds most powerful supercomputer handles 200,000 trillion calculations per second

    3:00

    The US Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has unveiled a computer capable of handling 200,000 trillion calculations per second (200 petaflops). Laying claim to the title of the world's most powerful supercomputer, Summit is eight times more powerful than ORNL's previous supercomputer, Titan, which came online in 2012 with a capacity of 27 petaflops.

    Supercomputers have advanced so far and so fast that it's easy to forget that the computers called smartphones we carry around in our pockets could stroll past a state-of-the-art supercomputer of a generation ago without breaking a digital sweat. However, ORNL's Titan supercomputer was 200,000 times more powerful than a desktop computer, so why make one eight times more powerful than that?

    That answer is that scientists are about the greediest consumers of computer power imaginable. Every time someone reaches the limits of contemporary computer technology, the results generated by those computers raise new questions that require computers many more times more powerful to provide the answers.

    Whether it's physics, biochemistry, meteorology, engineering, or artificial intelligence, many fields demand more number crunching than before. Start with trying to model a simple column of air and the next thing you know you're trying to model the weather patterns over an entire continent. A simple nuclear reaction calculation can end up simulating the complexities of a thermonuclear warhead explosion. Recreating a single neuron can lead to making a virtual rat's brain.

    Even more important, having access to such computing power has real international consequences, which is why there is constant competition to make bigger and better supercomputers in China, Taiwan, Japan, India, the United States, and Europe. Such computers are vital not only for science, but for weather forecasting, climate modeling, nuclear weapons development and safety, and complex engineering problems.

    An evolution of the Titan's hybrid CPU–GPU design, Summit uses the IBM AC922 system made up of 4,608 servers. Each of these is composed of two 22-core IBM Power9 processors, as well as six NVIDIA Tesla V100 graphics processing unit accelerators interconnected with dual-rail Mellanox EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand. Supporting this architecture is over 10 petabytes of memory and high-bandwidth pathways to handle data traffic.

    The upshot is that Summit is the first computer able to handle scientific calculations requiring at least one billion billion calculations per second, known as exascale calculations. It can work on AI research, machine learning, and deep learning as well as questions of medicine, and high-energy physics.

    This Is The's Most Powerful Supercomputer - 2017

  • Worlds Fastest Supercomputer

    1:43

    China's Tianhe-2, a supercomputer capable of operating as fast as 33.86 petaflops per second (Pflop/s), remains the world's most powerful system, according to a biannual Top500 list of supercomputers released Monday.

    Tianhe-2, developed by China's National University of Defense Technology, puts China back at the top of the list in June. It is almost twice as fast as the next computer on the list, the Titan of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), which has a performance of 17.59 Pflop/s.

    The Tianhe-2 is a very powerful computing system, said Jack Dongarra, professor of the University of Tennessee and Top500 editor. It has almost two times the performance of the number 2 system, Titan. I wouldn't be surprised if it was in the number 1 position for another year.

    In addition to its computing chips, Tianhe-2 uses technologies that have almost all been developed and built in China, including the interconnect system, operating system, front-end processors and software.

    Now Tianhe-2 has played a significant role in the fields of genetic engineering and weather forecast.

    When we try to make an exterior design for a new-type car, we should do real collision experiment several hundred times, which would take a long time (about two years) and cost much. But based on Tianhe-2, we can set up a simulated environment for collision experiment, which would need only two or three real collisions to set up the design of a new-type car within two or three months, said Tan Yusong, researcher of the National Supercomputing Center in Guangzhou.

    The major challenge is for China to develop the computing chip technology so it can build the whole computer with Chinese parts. Application software also presents a great challenge, Dongarra said.

    In November 2010, Tianhe-2's predecessor, Tianhe-1A, took the first spot but was overtaken by Japan's K computer six months later. Tianhe-1A is now No.12 on the list.

    Sequoia, installed at the DOE's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, is again the No. 3 system with a performance of 17.17 Pflop/s. Japan's K computer is the No. 4 system with 10.51 Pflop/s, followed by Mira, installed at the DOE's Argonne National Laboratory, which has a performance of 8.59 Pflop/s.

    The new entry in the Top10, Piz Daint, is at No. 6. The machine installed at the Swiss National Supercomputing Center achieved 6.27 Pflop/s. It is now the most powerful system in Europe and also the most energy efficient system in the Top10.

    The total combined performance of all 500 systems on the list is 250 Pflop/s, according to the list. Half of the total performance is achieved by the top 17 systems on the list, with the other half of the total performance spread among the remaining 483 systems.

    Overall, the United States is clearly the leading consumer of the supercomputing systems with 265 entries on the list. As a nation, China holds the No. 2 position with 63 entries, behind the United States but ahead of Japan, Britain, France and Germany, the list showed.

    The Top500 list, released twice a year since June 1993, is considered the authoritative ranking of the world's supercomputers. It is compiled on the basis of the machines' performance on the so-called Linpack benchmark by Dongarra and other experts from the United States and Germany.
