IBM announces new supercomputer

IBM has introduced its latest supercomputer

IBM has introduced its latest supercomputer which is capable of performing 10 quadrillion calculation per second (petaflops).

Called Mira, the supercomputer is built around the company's Blue Gene/Q platform. It is about four times faster than China's Tianhe-1A, the current fastest model in the world.

The system will be operational at the Argonne National Laboratory, a US Department of Energy institution in 2012.

With the help of the latest machine, experts will be able to provide better battery technology, while it will also support research into climate change, the evolution of the universe as well as nuclear reaction simulations.

Argonne's associate director of computing Rick Stevens said: "Computation and supercomputing are critical to solving some of our greatest scientific challenges, like advancing clean energy and understanding the Earth's climate.

"[Mira] will help address the critical demand for complex modelling and simulation capabilities, which are essential to improving our economic prosperity and global competitiveness."
