China’s Leap in Supercomputer Rankings

October 11, 2010 at 7:00 am

In merely a decade, China has become the world’s third-greatest power in high-performance computing. Will it soon boast the fastest computer?

When a list of the world’s 500 fastest computers is revealed on Nov. 15, it may contain a surprise. China, currently known to own the second-fastest computer, may reach the top spot. “Of the Top 10 machines today, China has two,” says Jack Dongarra, director of the innovative computing laboratory at the University of Tennessee. “I know for sure they’re going to have a third one in November.” Dongarra has overseen the semiannual Top 500 list since it first appeared in 1993. “There’s a great belief that the Chinese will be No.1,” he says, adding that he has yet to see the data for next month’s list.
