This cluster, located at Los Alamos National Laboratory, has 8,192 processors, running at 1.25 GHz and delivering 13.9 teraflops
. This machine has been on the list for quite some time, but it looks like big Linux clusters are getting ready to bypass it.
Ranked seventh on the top 10 is MCR, a 7.63 teraflops
cluster Linux Networx built for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory last year that includes 2,304 Intel Xeon processors.
"There are significant applications that require more than just teraFLOPS
As for the PS4 Pro, it comes with an AMD Polaris graphics with 4.2 teraflops
of performance and 8GB of GDDR5 RAM.
: One teraflop
is one trillion floating-point operations per second.
These systems are running simulations for the Large Hydron Collider, SETI, protein folding, etc., and are reporting throughput on the order of 100 teraflops
It has not yet attained its theoretical maximum performance in excess of 367 teraflops
- and the 100 teraflops
barrier has not yet been broken by any other supercomputer.
Blue Gene/L represents about $100m of that contract, and calls for IBM to deliver a 360 teraflops
machine comprised of 65,536 compute processors.
The new Linux Networx facility includes a manufacturing area with the capacity to stage up to 50 teraflops
of computing power simultaneously.
ASCI White, the code name for the RS/6000 SP computer system, theoretically has a maximum speed of 12.3 teraFLOPS
, or 12.3 trillion operations/ sec.
Currently, a number of manufacturers are developing prototypes that harness thousands of processors in parallel, in hopes of achieving teraflops
The tent shows the message "6>4," which might represent the Xbox Scorpio's 6 teraflops
of power and the PS4 Pro 4.12 teraflops
