Titan Supercomputer

I mentioned the Sequoia supercomputer last year, told you how it would best the world’s top 500 supercomputers combined.

And you know what? It did, when in fired up in June.

Here’s the thing, though: It’s already been surpassed by the Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

For comparison, Titan is capable of 17.59 quadrillion operations per second. Sequoia? 16.32 quadrillion operations.

Just wait about 25 years and both will fit in your pocket.
