Default IBM Builds 10 PFlops Supercomputer

Called Mira, the system is expected to deliver a maximum performance of about 10 PFlop/s which is about twice as fast as today's fastest supercomputer on the Top 500 list.

The new system will be built on IBM's BlueGene/Q technology and be capable of running about 10 quadrillion calculations per second, which is about 20 times the performance of Argonne's current Intrepid supercomputer. According to IBM, Mire will be able to do about the same number of calculations every second as every man, woman and child in the U.S. could do in one year if they were to do one calculation each second.
