SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 10, 2012

Welcome to Friday everyone. The weekend is here is last, and what better way to kick it off than with a giveaway?

IBM Sequoia Supercomputer grabs World’s Fastest crown

IBM Sequoia Supercomputer grabs World’s Fastest crown

IBM has reclaimed the World's Fastest Supercomputer crown, with a 16.32 sustained petaflop monster called Sequoia installed at the  National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). Based on a 96-rack IBM Blue Gene/Q system, NNSA's new toy will be used to model nuclear weapons management, including artificial testing so as to avoid the need for underground performance tests. The supercomputer record was previously held by Fujitsu with its K Computer, that came in at 10.51 petaflops.
