Kate Middleton Baby Birth Announcement: How Royals Will Reveal the News



How Kate Middleton and Prince William welcome their first child -- whose due date is July 11 -- the royal couple plan to first drop the big news to the world in very old fashioned style.

Top 10 World's Fastest Supercomputers

Top 10 World's Fastest Supercomputers

What is Supercomputer:

 A supercomputer is a computer at the frontline of current processing capacity – particularly speed of calculation. The term "Super Computing" was first used in the New York World in 1929 to refer to large custom-built tabulators that IBM had made for Columbia University.

Supercomputers were introduced in the 1960s, designed initially and, for decades, primarily by Seymour Cray at Control Data Corporation (CDC), Cray Research and subsequent companies bearing his name or monogram. While the supercomputers of the 1970s used only a few processors, in the 1990s machines with thousands of processors began to appear and, by the end of the 20th century, massively parallel supercomputers with tens of thousands of "off-the-shelf" processors were the norm. As of June 2013, China's Tianhe-2 supercomputer is the fastest in the world: at 33.9 PetaFLOPS, it is more than 20 billion (2 x 1010) times faster than the first supercomputer (the CDC 6600). For comparison purposes, that is roughly the difference between the top speed of a common sloth vs. the speed of light in vacuum.

Below are top 10 fastest supercomputers in the world which are operating by world's superpowers.

1. Tianhe-2 - China:

A Chinese university has built the world's fastest supercomputer, almost doubling the speed of the U.S. machine that previously claimed the top spot and underlining China's rise as a science and technology powerhouse. The semiannual TOP500 listing of the world's fastest supercomputers released Monday says the Tianhe-2 developed by the National University of Defense Technology in central China's Changsha city is capable of sustained computing of 33.86 petaflops per second. That's the equivalent of 33,860 trillion calculations per second. Supercomputers are used for complex work such as modeling weather systems, simulating nuclear explosions and designing jetliners.
