The world’s fastest supercomputer, called Intel Xeon E5-2640 v3, is capable of producing more than 1.5 petaflops of compute in a single clock cycle, the equivalent of 100,000,000 teraflop operations per second, according to the company’s blog.
Intel has been working on Xeon E 5-2600 v3 since 2010 and its performance is estimated to be more than double that of the current Xeon E4-2650 v4, the company said.
This year, the supercomputer has surpassed the speed of the world’s top supercomputers, such as the European Organization for Nuclear Research’s CERN particle physics laboratory, which is at the same level as the Intel Xeon W-2800 v4 and E5 systems.
The CERN facility is the world leader in research and computing, and it uses a system of eight Intel Xeon cores to handle a total of more than 150 petafluoroparsecs of data.
CERN uses its supercomputing facilities to perform experiments at more than 600 particle accelerators worldwide.
This is the second-fastest supercomputer built by Intel, after the world record-breaking Xeon E3-2670 v4.
Intel Xeon E6-2660 v3 was also the fastest supercomputation at the National Accelerator Laboratory in Boulder, Colo., according to CricNews.
It has been operating since April, when it surpassed the record-setting Xeon E7-2630 v3.
This new supercomputer is also running a new version of Windows 10, which it is known as Windows 10 Enterprise Edition.
The Xeon E8-2655 v3 is the fastest system Intel has built for the company, but it is still a little behind the fastest systems it has built in the past.
The new supercomparison is the result of Intel’s efforts to upgrade the Xeon E processor architecture, Intel COO and CTO Brian Krzanich said during the conference call.
The company’s Xeon processor architecture is based on a new design called the Xeon Phi chip, which was developed specifically for Intel’s Xeon E systems.
This processor is designed to take advantage of all the compute power of Intel Xeon processors.
