Titan, World's Fastest Computer

US-made super computer is claimed to have a speed of 20 000 trillion calculations per second

Illustration Super Computer (tcmagazine.com) degree in the world's fastest computer was taken back to the United States. A super computers made ​​by the U.S. Energy Department official was elected as the world's fastest computer. Similarly, researchers from PhysOrg.com presented, Thursday, March 24, 2011.

The computer was named "Titan". His ability is estimated to have a speed of 20 000 trillion calculations (calculations) per second, equal to 20 petaflops per second.

This speed is ultimately shift the super computer made ​​in China, Tianhe-1A, which had previously been in the top position since November 2010. At that time, computers made ​​by China's National Defense University has recorded an equivalent speed of 2.5 petaflops.

Titan, which was developed by Cray Computer, for the first time become part of the ranks of the world's fastest computer in the facility Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennessee.

In these facilities, laboratories ranks the world's fastest computer will be aligned with the lab of National Geographic, Gaea Atmospheric Administration, National Science Foundation Kraken, and the U.S. Department of Energy lab development, Jaguar.

Going forward, Titan will likely be used by the local Department of Energy to calculate the complex energy systems and government cost of U.S. $ 100 million, equivalent to Rp 870 billion.

The first stage of computation using the Titan is expected by the end of 2011. The second phase followed in subsequent years.
