Washington: The world’s fastest supercomputer has been officially launched in the United States.

fastest supercomputer United States
According to an international news agency, the Frontier system, installed at the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, is the fastest of the 500 supercomputers.
This fastest supercomputer is not only the fastest in the world, but it is also so powerful that none of the other seven fastest supercomputers can compete with it.
The Frontier Green 500 also tops the list after topping the top 500. The effectiveness of supercomputing systems is used to classify them.
To keep the machine cool, a cooling system that pumps 6,000 gallons of water per minute has been installed.
The crown of the fastest supercomputer was restored to America following the installation of this system. The previous record was held for two years by the Fugaku system, installed at Japan’s Raikan Center for Computational Sciences, which has now been surpassed by the Frontier system.
The Frontier Computer is not only the most powerful computer, but it was also the first to break through the “exaflop limit” and become the first exascale system.
An exaflop or exa scale computing refers to a machine that can perform 1,018 trillion operations per second.

According to TOP500, the Fugaku system in Japan, which held the top spot on the list for the previous two years, maintains a performance of 442 petaflops per second. Though Fugaku has the potential to break the one exaflop barrier at peak performance, Frontier has been crowned the first exascale machine. Aurora, developed by Intel and Argonne Laboratory, was also expected to reach this milestone, but the system was reportedly delayed due to manufacturing and technology issues. Another important note: The New York Times says that two systems in China have already passed this milestone without anyone knowing about it because their operators did not send their results to the scientists who keep track of TOP500.

performance per watt of 52.23 gigaflops, 8,730,112 cores, 700 petabytes of storage, and 74 cabinets.
