China overtook the United States recently to become the world leader of supercomputing on Sunday after a www.top500.org survey ranked the country's Tianhe supercomputer the fastest machine on the planet. The Tianhe, meaning Milky Way, is, in theory, able to complete more than 1 quadrillion calculations per second -- or one petaflop -- when running at peak speed. By comparison, one day of tasks for Tianhe might take a top-notch personal computer 160 years to complete, working non-stop. The...
