Linux is supercomputer king
Open sauce bubbles away really fast
According to the latest Top 500 supercomputer ratings, the average speed of Linux-powered racers is now 1.14 petaflops.
The fastest of the fast machines haven't changed since the June 2019 Top 500 supercomputer list.
Leading the way is Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Summit system, is the fastest HPL result of 148.6 petaflops. This is an IBM-built supercomputer using Power9 CPUs and NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs. In a rather distant second place is another IBM machine: Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's Sierra system. It uses the same chips, but it "only" hit a speed of 94.6 petaflops.
Close behind at Number three is the Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer, with an HPL mark of 93.0 petaflops. TaihuLight was developed by China's National Research Center of Parallel Computer Engineering and Technology (NRCPC) and is installed at the National Supercomputing Center in Wuxi. It is powered exclusively by Sunway's SW26010 processors.
