The Second Coming of TSUBAME

Oct 14, 2010 |

When the TSUBAME 2.0 supercomputer is formally inaugurated in December, it will officially be declared the fastest supercomputer in Japan. However, it’s not simply speed that separates this machine; boasting a raw performance of 2.4 petaflops, the new TSUBAME exceeds the total FLOPS capacity of all other government and academic supercomputers in Japan today. That kind of computational brawn will make it the platform of choice for some of the most powerful scientific applications on the planet.
