    For the fourth straight time, the BlueGene/L System development by IBM installed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, Calif,
    claimed the No. 1 Spot

    The BlueGene/L reached a Linpack benchmark performance of 280.6 TFlop/s (“teraflops” or trillions of calculations per second).

    Another Fact in relation:




    Your necktop computer /brain/ is more than a million times faster than BlueGene. Sounds awesome, but it is estimated that AI will surpass human intellegence by 2020, very scary stuff.

    That was very interesting to read, especially the fact about AI surpassing human intelligence by 2020. It is very exciting indeed.

    280.6 TFlop/s, hmmm I'm only on 180 TFlop/s. Better get some more practice in ;)
