China claims world's fastest supercomputer

When it's about speed, everybody want to beat the rest and be at the top.



China has claimed the title of the world's fastest supercomputer, wresting the record from the United States.
The Tianhe-1 machine at the National Center for Supercomputing is capable of sustained computing of 2.507 petaflops, the equivalent of 2,507 trillion calculations, per second, the Chinese project director tells state TV, according to the Associated Press.

Dongarra says the Tianhe-1, which means Milky Way, "blows away the existing No. 1 machine."
Officials from the National University of Defense Technology say the machine is "under the dual supervision of the Ministry of National Defense and the Ministry of Education," The Times reports.
