China maintains the top of the world’s most powerful supercomputer list




China has maintained its lead in the top 50 supercomputer rankings, Top500 in its 49th edition today, in conjunction with the inaugural ISC High Performance Conference this week in Frankfurt, Germany, where the report ranks the most powerful supercomputer on the year on a standard basis Linpack Linpack is being released twice a year.

Sunway TaihuLight, a computer designed by the China National Research Center for Parallel Computing and Technology (NRCPC) and located at the National Computing Center of China’s Wuxi City, has been ranked first through the processing capacity of 93 petaflops according to the Linpack Index.

The TaihuLight computer drew attention especially since it relied entirely on the processors designed and manufactured in China. The computer uses 40960 SW26010 processors, each with 260 nuclei, unlike Tianhe-2, which kept the second place on the list using 260,000 Xeon processors E5-2692v2 from Intel each with 12 core.

China’s Tianhe-2 has a processing capacity of 33.9 petaflops. The National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) has developed and is located at the National Computing Center in Guangzhou. It has been on the list of supercomputers for three years until it lost to TaihuLight In June 2016.

While the XC50 Piz Daint computer came in third on the list of the most powerful computers. The computer is located at the Swiss National Center for Supercomputers (CSCS) and has been upgraded with additional pieces of NVIDIA Tesla P100 graphics processing units, allowing it to double its performance on the Linpac index to 19.6 Petaflop.

The Titan Cray XK7, at the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, was fourth on the list with a processing capacity of up to 17.6. It was the second time that the United States missed the top three on the list Supercomputers since the organization began publishing the classification 24 years ago.

The United States has 5 of the top 10 supercomputers on the list, a higher rate than any other country, and the United States has 169 supercomputers on the Top 500 list, followed by China with 160 computers.

Intel has retained its core competency for its supercomputers, with 464 processors running out of the world’s top 500 on the rating list, while 21 supercomputers are based on IBM processors, while 6 Only supercomputers are currently on the AMD processor rating list.
