U.S. Builds World's Fastest Supercomputer - Summit

Though China still has more supercomputers on the Top 500 list, the USA takes the crown of "world's fastest supercomputer" from China after IBM and the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) unveiled "Summit."

Summit is claimed to be more than twice as powerful as the current world leader with a peak performance of a whopping 200,000 trillion calculations per second—that's as fast as each 7.6 billion people of this planet doing 26.3 million calculations per second on a calculator.

Until now the world's most powerful supercomputer was China's Sunway TaihuLight with the processing power of 93 petaflops (93,000 trillion calculations per second).
