According to a report by Gizmodo, for the first time, a new supercomputer capable of making 200 million-billion calculations per second, known as Summit, has been ranked as the world's most powerful super computer. Summit, built by IBM and Nvidia for the US Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, is a 200 petaflop machine, which means that it can perform 20 quadrillion calculations per second. The machine weighs 340 tons and is comprised of 4,608 servers, 9,216 central processing chips, and 27,648 graphics processors. Gizmodo reports that the system, housed in a 9,250 square-foot room at Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s facility in Tennessee, requires 4,000 gallons of water to keep this machine cool and uses as much power as 8,000 US homes.
