China Creates World's Most Powerful Supercomputer... the fall of America

NVIDIA Tesla GPUs Power World's Fastest Supercomputer
Half the Size, Lower Power and 50% Faster Than World's Top (American) Supercomputer

With the addition of the new supercomputer, China now has two of the three most powerful supercomputers in the world. The third most powerful one -- previously in second place -- was the Nebulae supercomputer located in Shenzhen, which also uses NVIDIA's Tesla GPUs. It has a peak capacity of 1.271 petaflops in LINPACK.

Tianhe-1a kicks an American computer out of the top spot. The Jaguar supercomputer built by Cray at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee is now only the world's second most powerful computer. That machine, powered by its thousands of Opteron cores, posted 1.75 petaflop LINPACK performance.
