Top500 list passes another milestone: 10 petaflops

James Niccolai | Nov. 15, 2011
Japan's K Computer has retained its pole position on the Top500 list of fastest supercomputers and become the first machine on the list to achieve performance of more than 10 petaflops.

The K Computer doesn't use graphics processors as accelerators, but 39 systems on the list do -- up from 17 in June -- with the vast majority using Nvidia chips.

The publication of the list coincides with the start of the weeklong SC11 supercomputing conference in Seattle.
