IBM Announces the World's Fastest, Most Energy Efficient Supercomputer

IBM unveiled Blue Gene/P supercomputer, the second generation Blue Gene. According to IBM, the newest supercomputer nearly triples the performance of its predecessor, Blue Gene/L, while remaining the most energy-efficient and space-saving computer on the market. The Blue Gene/P is designed to operate continuously at speeds exceeding one "petaflop" – or one-quadrillion operations per second. Blue Gene/P is at least seven times more energy efficient than any other supercomputer.
