The United States has returned to the top of the supercomputers, displacing Japan, thanks to the new powerful supercomputer “Frontier“, of the “Oak Rigde National Laboratory (ORNL)”, of the US Department of Energy in Tennessee, which took first place in the “Top 500” ranking of the most powerful and fastest supercomputers in the world.
“Frontier” is the first supercomputer to cross the Exaflop barrier (1.1 Exaflop / sec), performing over one billion billion calculations per second. The system, an “HPE Cray EX”, has a total of 8,730,112 cores!
In second place was the current holder of the first place, the Japanese supercomputer “Fugaku“, of the “RIKEN Computer Science Center”, which has a power of 442 Pflop / sec and 7,630,848 cores.
In third place was the new and largest European supercomputer system “LUMI” (152 PFlop / sec), located in Finland.
The second largest European supercomputer, the French “Adastra” at the “GENCI-CINES” center, for the first time entered the top ten in the world (in tenth place).
The top ten is completed by “Summit” (USA), “Sierra” (USA), “Sunway TaihuLight” (China), “Perlmutter” (USA), “Selene” (USA) and “Tianhe-2A” (China).
