Thirst for raw power

August 11, 2013 5:22 am

China’s Tianhe-2 became the world’s fastest supercomputer in June,setting a new record in strategic technology. While this field grows at a phenomenal pace,the need for speedy calculations accompanies it. Supercomputers can zero in on solutions,eliminate duds,and test probabilities of variables much faster. Here’s a look at these gigantic arrays of processing power and what lies beneath
