The June 2010 Top500 list (http://top500.org/lists/2010/06) of the world‚??s fastest supercomputers was released this week at ISC 2010 (http://www.supercomp.de/isc10/). ¬*While the US Jaguar supercomputer (located at the Department of Energy‚??s Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility)¬*retained the top spot in Linpack performance, a Chinese cluster called Nebulae, built from a Dawning TC3600 Blade system with Intel X5650 (http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=47922) processors and NVIDIA Tesla C2050 GPUs (http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_tesla_C2050_C2070_us.html) is now the fastest in theoretical peak performance at 2.98 PFlop/s and No. 2 with a Linpack performance of 1.271 PFlop/s. This is the highest rank a GPU-accelerated system, or a Chinese system, has ever achieved on the Top500 list.
