Curious Droid presents the top 10 fastest
computers in the world how do they compare to a PC or iPad pro if you need
to model things like the world’s weather, nuclear reactions, molecular dynamics or
simulate the first few seconds after the Big Bang you’re gonna need some pretty
serious computing power but just how much more powerful other top 10
supercomputers compared to the PC on your desktop or an iPad Pro for example
in this video we’ll see just how powerful supercomputers have become but first we need to know how do you measure a computer’s performance there are lots
of ways to do this but the most common high-performance systems and the
simplest to understand is to measure how many calculations per second they’re
capable of the unit of measurement is called the flop or floating point
operation a flop is a calculation that would be even adding subtracting
multiplying or dividing two numbers with decimal points in them for example 10.545 multiplied by 6.387 would be a single flop modern computers can do
with billions of times a second at the time of making this video in February
2016 the latest iPad pro with the A9x dual core CPU is capable of around about 1.5 gigaFLOPS that’s one and a half thousand million flops per second a
typical $1,000 PC with a single Intel 5820 6 core CPU is capable of around 100 gigaFLOPS 66 times more than an iPad Pro you
can measure the performance of your own Intel based PC or Mac or mobile device
with the same type of Linpack software as a used to benchmark supercomputers
just look for the link in the description of this video because
supercomputers are so much more powerful they are measured in PetaFLOPS one
PetaFLOP is equal to 1,000 teraFLOPs and one teraFLOP is equal to 1000 GigaFLOPs and remember our PC was 100 gigaFLOPS and the iPad Pro 1.5 gigaFLOPs. A petaFLOP is equal to about 1 million billion calculations per
second one estimate suggests that it would take a human about 32 million
years to complete the same task now we know one everyday computing device that you or I own is capable of let’s see how it compares to the top 10 supercomputers in the world. All the figures given were correct as of November 2015 and gathered
from the top500 list of supercomputers at number ten we have the Stampede
supercomputer the Texas Advanced Computing Center at the University of
Texas in United States this supercomputer is made by Dell and has a
maximum Linpack performance of 5.1 petaFLOPs that’s equivalent of 51,000
of our $1000 PC’s or 3.4 million iPad pros it has 464,462 processing cores and 192Tb of RAM and consumes
approximately 4.5 megawatts of power at maximum performance at number nine we
have been Shaheen 2 at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in
saudi arabia this supercomputer is made by Cray and has a maximum Linpack
performance of 5.5 petaFLOPs that’s equivalent of 55,000 of our PCs or 3.66
million iPad pros it costs approximately $51M to buy and install it has
196,608 processing cores and 790 terabytes of RAM consumes a maximum power of 2.8 megawatts at number eight is the Hazel Hen at the HLRS in Stuttgart
Germany this is another super computer made by Cray Inc and it has a
maximum Linpack performance of 5.6 petaFLOPs and is the fastest supercomputer
in the European Union that’s equipped to 56,000 of our PC’s or 3.73 million iPad pros it has 185,088 processing cores and consumes a maximum of 3.2 megawatts of power at number seven we have the Piz Daint at the Swiss
National Supercomputing Center at Lugano Switzerland the Piz Daint named after
a nearby mountain is yet another Cray built supercomputer has a maximum
Linpack performance of 6.2 petaFLOPs thats equivalence of 62,000 of our PCs or 4.13
million iPad pros it has 115,984 processing cores and 169Tb of RAM and consumes
a maximum of 2.3 megawatts of power at number six is the trinity at the Los
Alamos National Laboratory New Mexico United States yes this is yet another
Cray supercomputer and is a maximum Linpack performance of 8.1 petaFLOPs 81,000 PCs or 5.4 million iPad pros it has
301,056 processing cores and cost approximately $174M. At number five we have the Mira Bluegene/Q at
the US Department of Energy Argonne National Laboratory Illinois United
States this supercomputer was built by IBM and has a maximum Linpack performance
of 8.5 petaFLOPs that’s the equivalent of 85,000 of our PCs or 5.66 million iPad
pro’s it has 780,432 processing cores 768 terabytes of RAM and consumes a maximum of 3.9 megawatts power no cost has been released by IBM
but it was believed to have been around $50M at number four is
the K computer at the RIKEN advanced Institute for computational science at
Kobe Japan built by Fujitsu the K supercomputer has a maximum Linpack
performance of 10.5 petaFLOPs that the equivalent of 105,000 of our PC’s or 7 million iPad Pro’s it has 705,024 processing cores and 1,410 terabytes of RAM
and consumes a maximum of 12 megawatts of power to give you an idea of a
the perforemance of this machine simulation of the human heart which had taken two
years was accomplishing just one day on the K computer at number three is the
Sequoia Bluegene/Q at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory California
United States the number three on the top 10 list is built by IBM and has a
maximum Linpack performace of 17.1 petaFLOPs that’s equivalent of 171,000 of our PC’s or 11.4 million iPad pros it has 1,572,864 processing cores 1,572 terabytes of RAM and consumes a maximum power of seven point eight
mega watts the primary use of a Sequoia is for
nuclear weapons simulation but it would also be used to study of the human
genome, climate change and astronomy to name but a few at number two is the Titan Oak Ridge National Laboratory Tennessee
United States another Cray built supercomputer is at number two on the
list and has a maximum Linpack performance of 17.5 petaFLOPs that
the equivalent of 175,000 thousand of our PCs 11.6 million iPad Pro’s it has 560,640 processing cores 710 terabytes of RAM and consumes a maximum of 7.1 mega watts power at the
number one slot on the top 10 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers
is the Tianhe-2 or Milky Way 2 have a national Supercomputer Center at
Guangzhou City Guangdong Province China this was built by the Chinese national
university of defense technology and has a maximum Linpack performance of 33.8 petaFLOPs thats the equivalent of 338,000 our PCs or 22.53 mIllion iPad Pro’s it has 3,120,000 processing cores and
1024 terabytes of RAM and consumed a maximum power of
17.8 megawatts the Tianhe-2 has been a top supercomputer for the past three
years running now in the top 500 list which comes out twice a year so where do we go from here well if anyone can figure out how to
build a real quantum computer IBM have previously stated that if one could be
made with just 50 quantum bits or qubits that could detect both types of errors
and scale to large systems no combination of today’s top 500
supercomputers could successfully outperform it until then we’ll look
forward to the first 1,000 petaflop or 1 exaFLOP machine in hopefully
around 2025 thanks for watching and I hope you

    They don't tell you much about this. But most researchers use up to a maximum of 5(80 cores) to 8(128 cores) nodes for their simulation. Once a week to once a month, you'll see some really big jobs using 1024 cores to 5000 cores. But they're not so common. Those maximum flops are just what researchers use to sell the idea to congress to get money to buy these computers.

    In the late 1980's I was working with flash, and it took so long until it replaced the hard disk drive in a PC, I have to wonder what exists now that will probably not make it into PC's or some other device like a phone until a good 30 years later, sometimes the best thing I could do was build a computer for a network but use it as a PC, with parts that look like they should work in a PC.

    Worth noting that supercomputers are built completely different than an ordinary computer. The very structure of their construction is nothing alike, and even the way they organize and process data is different from a personal computer. Basically because they're built for a specific purpose and only do math, and don't have to interact with humans or the internet or anything like that, they can do things faster and use much simpler processors – and the simpler a processor is, the faster you can make them and the more you can cram into the same space. A large portion of their physical size is actually to accommodate their cooling systems, more so than the actual components. These are computers that use massive refrigeration units, sometimes filled with liquid nitrogen, and have more cooling power than an industrial freezer.

    An equally impressive figure is how much faster an individual's computer can be vs the supercomputers of the past. I'm blessed with the blistering Threadripper 1950x which can crank out an even 1Tflop at 4 Ghz. That's equivalent to two Cray-IIs supercomputers from the time when I got my first computer, an Apple ][+.
