The June 2010 Top500 list
of the world's fastest supercomputers was released this week at ISC 2010
. 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
processors and NVIDIA Tesla C2050 GPUs
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.
