China wins supercomputer crown for eighth time

China wins supercomputer crown for eighth time
18 November 2016 Current Affairs: For the eight consecutive year, China has retained the top spot in the list of the world's fastest supercomputers for its 'Sunway TaihuLight' which can perform 93 million billion calculations per second.

TaihuLight, the massive supercomputer, built entirely using processors designed and made in China has been crowned as the world's fastest, state-run Xinhua news agency quoted the latest edition of the semiannual Top500 list of supercomputers .

TaihuLight made its appearance in June, replacing the former champion, Tianhe-2, also a Chinese system but built based on Intel chips. TaihuLight is capable of performing 93 million billion calculations per second (petaflop/s).

That is almost three times as fast as Tianhe-2, which had claimed No 1 spot in the Top500 list for the past three years.

In the previous list released in June, China overtook the US in the number of total supercomputers installed. That was the first time that the US has not dominated this category since the list was started 23 years ago.

This time, the number of systems installed in China increased to 171 from 168 on the last list.

China and the US are "neck-and-neck in the performance category" with the latter holding 33.9 per cent of the overall installed performance while the former is second with 33.3 per cent of the overall installed performance.
