State of the art High Performance Computing (HPC)

There’s a three minute youtube video on the fastest supercomputer ever built (as of now).

For a bit more write up on it, check out this article.

top500.org maintains a listing of the top 500 fastest supercomputers in the world. I’ve been fortunate enough to run two of them (both now long off the list). One was an IBM SP2 whose highest rank was #140. The other was a Linux Itanium2 cluster running Myrinet whose highest rank was #102.
