The 36th edition of World’s TOP 500 Supercomputer list was announced on the Nov 16th. China’s Tianhe-1A is ranked at the No.1 of the list, is capable of sustaining computation at 2.57 petaflop/s. Followed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Jaguar in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, that achieved 1.75 petaflop/s. Chinese experts claimed, Tianhe-1A is a milestone of China’s supercomputer industry.
Tianhe is a demonstration of how “a country can achieve if they put their money on their ambitions,” said Strohmaier at the same ceremony. “Making progress like that is only possible by supporting your research community and your manufactures for extended period of time like five to 10 years.”
“Tianhe-1A will help solve difficult problems, and foreign clients are welcome to make use of its capabilities,” Li said. Moreover, Tianhe-1A has been successfully used to survey mines, forecast weather and design high-end machinery.
The chief designer of the world’s fastest supercomputer invited foreign experts to see the machine in north China’s port city of Tianjin and to tackle challenges in supercomputer development together.
