China retains its lead with the two fastest supercomputers in the world Today brings a new TOP500 list of the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world.And China still sits on top, with the number one and number two systems: Sunway TaihuLight, at a Linpack rating of 93 petaflops, and Tianhe-2, at 34 petaflops.

China, already dominant in supercomputers, shoots for an exascale prototype in 2017

China, already dominant in supercomputers, shoots for an exascale prototype in 2017 Back in June, China debuted the world’s fastest supercomputer, the Sunway TaihuLight (pictured), with a Linpack benchmark result of 93 petaflop/s.While China is targeting 2017 for the completion of the exascale prototype, it expects to put a fully realized system in operation sometime in 2020.
