Powerful Supercomputers

Found a great site called Top500.org which list the 500 fastest computer systems being used today. While browsing this site i was introduced to the words “teraflops” and “gigaflops” – Tflops and Gflops respectively. To put this in perspective, a supercomputer which ranks the highest on the Top500 list delivers a performance value of 4.0 teraflops. See the definition here – i couldn’t figure it out!

Check it out… let us know if you find any images
