Incase you havent been hearing the buzz leading up to ISC. Chinese are building Tianhe 2 Supercomputer
The reported performance (we have four highly credible sources confirming) is between 53-55 peak and between 27-29 LINPACK sustained performance. This is actually better than we were led to believe yesterday when it felt a little wrong to make the "50 petaflop" claim, despite our best sources telling us it was so
This is a MIC-only system from what we understand—no GPU acceleration thrown in for added fire, which was what gave the Tianhe-1A its chart-topping power.
