NNSA Announces New Mark for World's Fastest Supercomputer
This world record for a scientific application was set by achieving a sustained performance of 207.3 trillion floating-point operations per second (tera FLOPS) on the “Qbox” computer code for conducting materials science simulations critical to national security.
BG/L is an IBM supercomputer housed at NNSA’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and is ranked as the world’s fastest supercomputer by the Top500 (www.top500.org). It is used to conduct materials science simulations for NNSA’s Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) program, which unites the scientific computing know-how of NNSA’s Los Alamos, Sandia and Lawrence Livermore national laboratories. The computer simulation capabilities developed by the ASC program provide the nuclear weapons analysis that NNSA needs to keep the nuclear weapons stockpile safe, secure and reliable without underground nuclear testing.
