World has new fastest super-computer

July 1, 2016

The world has a new fastest computer — and it leaves the former champion in the dust.

The Sunway TaihuLight, based in China, can perform 93 quadrillion operations per second.
That’s 93 million billion, or 93,000,000,000,000,000 — also known as 93 petaflops.

Tianhe-2, also in China, held the previous record for three years. It can perform 33 petaflops per second. Sunway TaihuLight is twice as fast and three times as efficient as Tianhe-2.

Sunway TaihuLight cost about $380 million to develop and build.

The third-fastest computer is a Titan Cray XK7, based at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, United States. It runs at 17 petaflops.

Other countries with computers in the top 10 are Japan, Switzerland, Germany and Saudi Arabia.
