The 500 fastest PCs in the world

The list of the 500 fastest supercomputers, which appears every six months, was published in a current version at the 'Supercomputer 2000' exhibition in Mannheim. According to this list, Intel holds the top rider's crown with the ASCI Red for the third year now.

But it is In my opinion, it was forced by mass rather than class, because the ASCI Red has 9632 PPro processors that provide a total of 2380 GFLOPS. The IBM ASCI Blue Pacific came in second in the Top 500 with 5808 PowerPC processors and 2144 GFLOPS and that with a little more than half as many processors as the ASCI Red. The list of the 500 fastest supercomputers that appears every six months was published in a current version at the 'Supercomputer 2000' fair in Mannheim. According to this list , with the ASCI Red, Intel holds the crown of the front runner for the third year now. But in my opinion this was forced more by quantity than by class, because 9632 PPro processors work in the ASCI Red which provide a total of 2380 GFLOPS. The IBM ASCI Blue Pacific came second in the Top 500 with 5808 PowerPC processors and 2144 GFLOPS and that with a little more than half as many processors as the ASCI Red. The Hitachi SR8000-F1/122, who does his work in the Leibniz Center in Munich with 1035 GFLOPS, made it. If you look at the list in its entirety, more than 50% of the computers are in the USA (260), 135 in Europe (almost half from Germany) and 61 in Japan. Today more would be possible than the 2.4 Terra FLOPS des Front runner, but the problem of a great computer usually fails because of money and not because of the possibilities!
