Fujitsu Supercomputer Is Fastest in the World at 10.51 Petaflops

Supercomputers seem to be spoken of a lot these days but, then again, with monsters the size of the Fujitsu K, this is hardly surprising.

The Top500 list of supercomputers will probably have the K at the very top next time it is compiled.

Though Fujitsu has not yet held the official press release that will officially claim the world's fastest title for the HPC application, a report did it well enough in advance.

Right now, the K can work at ten petaflops or, more precisely, 10.51 petaflops, in line with how Fujitsu wanted to make this possible by 2012.

The conglomerate has 88,128 processors spread across 864 racks and relies on $10 million (7.22 Euro) worth of electricity a year.

The formal press release will be made at SC11 (will take place from November 12 to 18).
