Last year, a supercomputer name “Jaguar Cray XT5” win over other supercomputers to become the world current fastest supercomputer. The second runner is IBM Roadrunner. Jaguar is a supercomputer with performance of 1,759 teraflops.
Below is the Jaguar‘s Data:
- Performance: 1.759 petaflops (theoretical maximum: 2.33 petaflops)
- Processors: 37,376 six-core AMD Opteron 2.6 GHz
- Processor cores: 224,256
- Total RAM: 300 terabyte
- Total disc space: 10 petabyte
- System type: Cray XT5
- Operating system: Cray custom version of SUSE Linux
“Jaguar” setup takes up 4,400 square feet, which is larger than an NBA basketball court.
This supercomputer is build to help scientists for performance on a 64-bit scientific application like simulations of space “supernovas”, weather and climate related application research.
What are you going do IF you has a supercomputer in your home…??? 😛
