FRANKFURT, Germany; BERKELEY, Calif.; and KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— The 49th edition of the TOP500 list was released today in conjunction with the opening session of the ISC High Performance conference, which is taking place this week in Frankfurt, Germany. The list ranks the world’s most powerful supercomputers based on the Linpack benchmark and is released twice per year.
FRANKFURT, Germany; BERKELEY, Calif.; and KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— The 48th edition of the TOP500 list saw China and United States pacing each other for supercomputing supremacy. Both nations now claim 171 systems apiece in the latest rankings, accounting for two-thirds of the list. However, China has maintained its dominance at the top of the list with the same number 1 and 2 systems from six months ago: Sunway TaihuLight, at 93 petaflops, and Tianhe-2, at 34 petaflops. This latest edition of the TOP500 was announced Monday, November 14, at the SC16 conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.
FRANKFURT, Germany; BERKELEY, Calif.; and KNOXVILLE, Tenn.—China maintained its No. 1 ranking on the 47th edition of the TOP500 list of the world’s top supercomputers, but with a new system built entirely using processors designed and made in China. Sunway TaihuLight is the new No. 1 system with 93 petaflop/s (quadrillions of calculations per second) on the LINPACK benchmark.
FRANKFURT, Germany; May 10 – The ISC Group, promoter of the TOP500 list, is pleased to announce the appointment of high performance computing (HPC) industry journalist Michael Feldman to the position of managing editor of TOP500 News. In his new role, Feldman will expand the TOP500 project’s information portal into a comprehensive news site reporting on the HPC industry.
FRANKFURT, Germany; BERKELEY, California; BLACKSBURG, Virginia; May 6 – The ISC Group, promoter of the TOP500 list, is pleased to announce that the Green500 will be integrated with the TOP500 project as of today, hence streamlining all future submissions to be based on joint power submission rules. The integration follows nearly a decade of collaboration and several years of discussions between the two projects as well as with the Energy-Efficient High-Performance Computing (EE HPC) Working Group.
