China unveils world’s fastest supercomputer

PC Magazine

“China has introduced the world’s fastest supercomputer, asserting itself as a global technology power. The creation of the machine called Tianhe-1A thus supplants the U.S. as the creator of the most powerful machine. … According to a New York Times report, the machine is 1.4 times faster than Cray XT5 Jaguar, the now second fastest supercomputer that is housed at a Tennessee national lab. The system weighs 155 tons and has 103 cabinets that cover 1,000 square meters. Tianhe-1A’s record speed is reached using 14,336 Intel Xeon CPUs and 7,168 Nvidia Tesla GPUs.” [editor’s note: Yes, it’s running Linux - TLK] (10/28/10)
