Sequoia, an IBM BlueGene/Q supercomputer at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), was announced as the world’s fastest supercomputer on June 18, 2012.
Kicking off a series of HPC for Energy infographics, a “Brief History of Supercomputers,” compares Sequoia to computers of the past and present. The new infographic explores how supercomputing has evolved over time and reveals which countries have today’s fastest supercomputers.
HPC for Energy is a project of the National Roadmap for Advancing Energy Technologies, an ongoing program of the Howard Baker Forum in partnership with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The Roadmap provides a platform for energy technologists, computational experts, industry executives and public officials to foster greater public-private partnerships for advancing energy technologies and innovation in the United States.
