Significant changes in the top five
The list of the most productive supercomputers Top500 has been updated once again. Let us remind you that this happens once every six months.
While several supercomputers with performance of about 2 exaFLOPS or higher are on the way, the leader is still the Frontier system, which was the first to overcome the 1 exaFLOPS mark and remains the only one of its kind, far ahead of its closest competitor.
The Frontier supercomputer based on AMD components remains the most powerful in the world.
This competitor, by the way, has changed. If six months ago the Supercomputer Fugaku system with a performance of 442 PFLOPS was in second place, now it is Aurora with a performance of 585 PFLOPS. But it is worth saying that now this is only part of the system that has already been put into operation. As a result, Aurora will have performance in excess of 2 exaFLOPS. This system is built on Intel Xeon CPU Max 9470 processors and Intel Data Center Max accelerators. Frontier, remember, relies on AMD components.
