Big Blue has brought the title of the world's fastest supercomputer back to the United States for the first time in three yearsInternational Business Machine Corp.'s still incomplete Blue Gene/L system was officially named the fastest in the world Monday by the Top500 project, an independent group of university computer scientists who release supercomputer rankings every six months. The system was clocked at 70.72 trillion calculations per second, almost double the performance of the reigning leader - Japan's Earth Simulator, which can sustain 35.86 trillion calculations a second.
The only easy day was yesterday.
