Every developed country certainly has a super computer that can make the country forward in terms of technology. But do you know the number one supercomputer in the world?
In developed and developing countries, there must be a supercomputer that is usually used for weather forecasting, climate research, and functions such as simulation. This supercomputer is certainly not ordinary computer, because the supercomputer itself consists of several computers combined.
One of the interesting this time is the supercomputer belonging to the Bamboo Curtain country, China. Quoted from TweakTown, Wednesday (18/11/2015), now China has had 109 pieces of supercomputers. The figure is 3x higher than the figure 6 months ago, which the country only has 37 supercomputers.
Supercomputer Tianhe-2 with the name ranked first as the fastest supercomputer in the world, according from data released by the top 500 recently. How not to fast, this super computer only has a core as much as 3.12 million, frightening is not it? Not only that China also bulldoze the superpower, like the United States are well known to be the development of advanced technology.
Tianhe-2 is made by China’s National University of Defense Technology, located in Changsha, Hunan. Armed with such specifications of the Intel Xeon processor E5-2692v2 12C, which has a speed of 2.2 GHz and 1.024 million GB of RAM aka 1000 TB, making Tianhe-2 shot almost 2x that of a processor supercomputer is in position 2, Titan Cray XK7.
