German supercomputers among ten fastest in the world

Germany 13 July 2009, 02:07

The two computers, which are both located at the Research Center Juelich, are the first models from Germany to simultaneously be in the top ten fastest supercomputers in the world.

The two computers, which are both located at the Research Center Juelich, are the first models from Germany to simultaneously be in the top ten fastest supercomputers in the world. The first has been dubbed Europe's fastest computer. Its name is JUGENE and it was ranked third on the list of the Top 500 supercomputers, which was recently published at a supercomputer conference in Hamburg.

The other computer from Juelich – JUROPA/HPC-FF – was tenth on the list. According to the Research Center Juelich, that's the first time in the history of the world rankings that two computers from a single European institute have been in the top ten at the same time. Both computers were developed by experts at the Juelich Supercomputing Center with support from partner firms. The computer JUGENE can complete more than one quadrillion computations per second, which is around 50,000 times faster than a modern PC.
