I read an interesting article titled “IBM Burns Through Record Book With 9th Straight No.1 Showing Atop World Supercomputer List” at <a class="jive-link-external" href="http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/Ibm-NYSE-IBM-921331.html">http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/Ibm-NYSE-IBM-921331.html</a> . It contains good information on IBM’s achievement in the world’s TOP500 list of Supercomputers (<a class="jive-link-external" href="http://www.top500.org">http://www.top500.org</a>)<div>&nbsp;</div> Here are some interesting facts from the article:<div>&nbsp;</div> This is a record-setting ninth consecutive time that IBM took the No. 1 position on the TOP500 list. Roadrunner is not only the world’s fastest supercomputer it is also one of the world’s greenest. It currently ranks No. 3 in the Green500 List (<a class="jive-link-external" href="http://www.green500.org">http://www.green500.org</a>) and consumes roughly half the electricity as Jaguar, the No. 2 ranked system on the Top500 list. Besides delivering the world’s fastest supercomputers, IBM is also the leader in delivering energy-smart systems. Currently all of the top 10, and 76 of the top 100 systems on the Green500 list are built by IBM. <div>&nbsp;</div> I believe the MFLOPS/watt score will gain more attention as we move forward.
