Supercomputer doubles own record

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4386404.stm

The Blue Gene/L supercomputer has broken its own record to achieve more than double the number of calculations it can do a second.

It reached 280.6 teraflops - that is 280.6 trillion calculations a second.

Gotta love IBM. Constant R&D money, open standards, huge supercomputers, support for grids with World Community Grid...

I have family working at IBM. I just wish I was allowed to play with these fun toys
