Default Racing to build the world's mightiest computer

Currently the world's fastest computer is a machine installed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory late last year--and still growing--that has reached more than 136 trillion operations a second, or 100,000 times the speed of a fast desktop personal computer. IBM built the machine, Blue Gene/L, and plans to double its speed before the end of the year.
