Wow, just wow. China has just surpassed the US and the rest of the world by revealing the world's fastest supercomputer.
Dubbed the Tianhe-1A, it is located at the National Supercomputer Center (where else would you build a Supercomputer but the National Supercomputer Center!!) in Tianjin. The Tianhe-1A scored 2.507 petaflops as measured by the LINPACK benchmark.
The Tianhe-1A now beats the Cray's 2.3 petaflops.
Tianhe-1A was able to achieve it's record by using 7, 168 NVIDIA Tesla M2050 GPU's and 14, 336 Intel Xeon CPU's consuming a very nice 4.04 megawatts.
I *was* going to crack a Crysis joke here, but I think it's been done to death ;)
