NASA's Intel Itanium 2-based system fastest in world

Posted on Tuesday, October 26 2004 @ 21:52:08 CEST by

Intel today announced that its latest Intel Itanium 2 processor powers the world's fastest supercomputer.

Intel has congratulated NASA and SGI on building Project Columbia, a system that boasts a world-record speed of 42 trillion floating point operations per second (42 teraFLOP/s) and was deployed in less than six months.

A few weeks ago IBM announced it had the fastest supercomputer with its new new Blue Gene/L that is capable of doing 36.01 teraflops.
