IBM dominates Green500 supercomputer list

IBM has smashed its competitors in the latest Green500 list of the most energy-efficient supercomputers, which shows that performance and running costs need not be diametrically opposed. The latest list shows that other supercomputer vendors are struggling to compete with IBM in the bang per Watt stakes.

Published in Energy
IBM has obliterated the competition in the supercomputing stakes with the top 10 of the top 500 supercomputers in the world, but Microsoft has surprisingly scraped in at number 23 with its Windows HPC Server system. While Microsoft is an unlucky 13 numbers away from the top 10, does the wow start now?

The idea of replacing some of the pathways within computers and other digital devices has been around for some time. Such an arrangement could reduce energy consumption (and therefore waste heat) while dramatically increasing the available bandwidth. A new development by IBM researchers may have brought such products closer.
