The new list of the world’s top 500 supercomputers was released in Dallas on the 12th. The US supercomputer “top” won the championship, and the total number of Chinese supercomputers still ranked first, and the number increased further than the previous period.
The Global Top 500 list is released semi-annually. This new list shows that the “Vertex” developed by the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory has once again reached the top and expanded its lead. Its floating-point operation speed has increased from 1.23 billion times per second to half a year ago. 14.35 billion times per second. Ranked third in the previous issue, the “ridge” developed by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory under the US Department of Energy, advanced to the runner-up.
China’s super-calculations “Shenwei·Taihu Light” and “Tianhe No.2” ranked third and fourth respectively. Germany’s super-calculated “Super MUC-NG” ranked first in the top ten, ranking eighth. This supercomputer, installed at the Leibniz Supercomputer Center in Germany, is manufactured by Lenovo.
From the total number of super-calculations on the list, China has increased from 206 units to 227 units six months ago, accounting for more than 45% of the total. The total number of US supercomputers on the list is 109, a record low, but continue to maintain an advantage in computing power.
The list also shows that Chinese companies occupy the top three among the top ten supercomputer manufacturers in the world, among which Lenovo ranks the champion with 140, and the wave ranks runner-up with 84, Zhongke Shuguang 57 units ranked third. Huawei made 14 units, ranking eighth.
The list of the world’s top 500 supercomputers began in 1993 and was compiled by the international organization “TOP500”. It is released every six months and is a well-known list of installed supercomputers in the world.
