U.S. supercomputer to return to the world’s first Chinese Tianhe 5
the U.S. super-computer “Sequoia screenshots
Global Times reporter Evan] IBM’s production of” Sequoia “supercomputer was awarded the world’s fastest computer titles, previously ranked first Japanese supercomputer “Beijing” into second. This is also the United States was defeated by China in the field two years ago for the first time to return to the top spot.According to the BBC on the 18th, “Sequoia” supercomputer installed at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, it will be used to simulate nuclear tests, to extend the aging nuclear-weapon-free life, without having to conduct underground nuclear tests in reality.
the U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration officials Thomas Dag Agostino said: “The computing power provided by the ‘Sequoia’ will improve confidence in our nuclear deterrent capability, it also represents the United States in high-performance op leadership. “
According to reports, the computing power of the” Sequoia “Maria, one hour of computing the amount of the equivalent of 6.7 billion people a day 320 of the manual operator. Speed ??1.55 times faster than the second “Beijing”, but also more energy efficient than the “Beijing”. Said David Turek, vice president of IBM high performance computing, the company is prepared to regain the championship two years. Involved in the assessment of global supercomputer ranking German Professor Hans Moore said, “at least next year, ‘Sequoia’ will not go beyond the” other computers.
report said that despite U.S. efforts to maintain its leadership position in the field of high-performance computing, but in the world’s fastest supercomputer, the United States only 3 seats, which compared with six months ago, 5 I regress; In addition, China and Germany accounted for two; Japan, France and Italy each have one.
International Supercomputing Organization on the 18th to announce the latest Top 500 list of the world’s supercomputers, the super computer to regain the throne of the world, Chinese supercomputer ranked fifth.
