Titan: The World’s Fastest ComputerMay 3rd, 2011 | By wownesia | Category: Technology
Titan, the world’s fastest computer. Title of world’s fastest computer was taken back to the United States. A super computers made by the U.S. Energy Department official was elected as the world’s fastest computer. Similarly, researchers from PhysOrg.compresented, Thursday, March 24, 2011.
The computer was named ”Titan”. Its ability is estimated to have a speed of 20 000 trillion calculations per second, equal to 20 petaflops per second. This speed is ultimately shift the super computer made in China, Tianhe-1A, which had previously been in the top position since November 2010. At that time, computers made by China’s National Defense University has recorded an equivalent speed of 2.5 petaflops.
Titan, which was developed by Cray Computer, for the first time become part of the ranks of the world’s fastest computer in the facility Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennessee.In these facilities, laboratories ranks the world’s fastest computer will be aligned with thelab of National Geographic, Gaea Atmospheric Administration, National Science Foundation Kraken, and the U.S. Department of Energy lab development, Jaguar.
Going forward, Titan will likely be used by the local Department of Energy to calculate the complex energy systems and government cost of U.S. $ 100 million. The first stage of computation using the Titan is expected by the end of 2011.The second phase followed in subsequent years.
