Worlds fastest supercomputers unveiled

The US National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) has unveiled two new IBM supercomputers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), which are capable of the fastest processing speeds yet achieved.

The 65,536 processor BlueGene/L supercomputer has performed a record 280.6 trillion operations per second on the industry standard LINPACK benchmark - software used to rank the speeds of the world’s fastest machines.

Purple, the other half of the most powerful supercomputing twosome, is a machine capable of 100 trillion operations per second as it conducts simulations of a complete nuclear weapons performance.

Together, the Purple and BlueGene/L systems will perform half a petaflop, or half of a quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) operations per second.

NNSA administrator Linton F Brooks said the machines will be used to run three-dimensional codes at lightning-fast speeds for nuclear weapons’ analysis. This was formerly accomplished by underground nuclear testing.

“The unprecedented computing power of these two supercomputers is more critical than ever to meet the time-urgent issues related to maintaining our nation’s aging nuclear stockpile without testing,” Brooks said.

“Purple represents the culmination of a 10-year effort to create a new class of supercomputers. BlueGene/L points the way to the future and the computing power we will need to improve our ability to predict the behaviour of the stockpile as it continues to age. This has reestablished American computing preeminence.”

In a recent demonstration of its work capability, BlueGene/L ran a record-setting materials science application at 101.5 teraflops sustained over seven hours on the machine’s 131,072 processors, running an application of importance to NNSA’s effort to ensure the safety and reliability of the nation’s nuclear deterrent. A teraflop is one trillion computer operations per second.

Both machines were developed through NNSA’s Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) program and join a series of other supercomputers at Sandia and Los Alamos national laboratories that are dedicated to NNSA’s Stockpile Stewardship effort to maintain the nation’s nuclear deterrent through science-based computation, theory and experiment.

I wonder why we still have to use these super computers on nuclear weapons.....if we are not going to use it....(atleast for the next few years)

are they trying to calculate how many people would die in a neuclear blast ??? :(

remember those encryption that suppose would take 10,000 years to find the answer/crack?

oh on super computers and nukes. they actually use these super computers to see what would happen in a nuke test exploretion without using nukes. remember that chinese spy that stole super secret nuke legecy data during clintons adm? thanks to that sob they have neutron bomb and have actually tested it. we never test those.

we test neutron bombs all the time, those are the ones that knock out eletrical equipment with EMPs. your thinking of hydrogen or fusion bombs (aka. country killers), we've never detonated one of those suckers (above ground any ways) :( russia did tho, and the explosion was seen from over 500 miles away! :rolleyes:

i don't know what was stolen, didn't hear about that (was prolly only like 12 anyways), but hopefully it was just the nuetron bomb...

And how is this different to the US spy's :( .

Sorry, but everytime you defend the US saying its "the best" and stuff and SAME stuff happens there.

You say europe has poor freedom laws, i suppose you havent heard of the PATRIOT ACT have you?

As nsane said, Neutron bombs are tested regularly in the US.

im pretty sure we have never tested a n bomb. (thats why we use super comptuers now) nor old ussr. china has on 3 times after the mid 90's now both the usa and ussr have tested above ground h bombs before baning testing in the atmopshere and space. later ussr did a underground one and since it, underground, wasnt cover in the ban both the usa and ussr contunie testing them. only china and france still do above ground testing. india and pak underground (they never isgn the non nuke treaty) and suppose isreal tested with use of a missle by old south african government in the india ocean. (isreal is the 3rd nation to never sign the non nuke treaty) usa now days tested with super comptuers most of the time. one of the last know testing in nv was claim to be in the 300-500 range that was felt in las vegas.

i didnt defend the usa. i was showing super computers and nukes material. clintons and chinese go together like bread and butter.

patriot act doesnt effect freedom. you have no right nor freedom to be a terrorist. all the patriot act does is let the cops get evidence before the terrorist attack. just look at the london bombings. the british government knew of the terrorist but wasnt allow to stop them. in the 2nd attack the brother went to italy where his 2 other brothers where at. they had a nice website set up and collecting funds for terrorism. they took the one terrorist brother back (after a month) but i dont recall if they sent those 2 other brothers back since they clearly where in on it too.

you dont give terrorist rights. thats the problem over here at the moment with stupid democrats. a terrorist is different from normal killers. they would kill you if given a chance.

just look at the london bombings.  the british government knew of the terrorist but wasnt allow to stop them.

I'd like to see where you got this information from, thanks :(

I'm 99.99% sure the US has tested N Bombs. You have no idea what goes on behind closed doors ANYWHERE in the world. The media has a HUGE bias.

Whats the difference between one nation testing a bomb compared to another?! Oh wait... the MEDIA says they are bad.... oh we must beleive them!

i didnt defend the usa.  i was showing super computers and nukes material.  clintons and chinese go together like bread and butter. 

Yes you did, you did, you critised another nation, by implying the US is better.

patriot act doesnt effect freedom.  you have no right nor freedom to be a terrorist.  all the patriot act does is let the cops get evidence before the terrorist attack.

Something for you to read about the PA: http://www.aclu.org/SafeandFree/SafeandFre...?ID=12126&c=207

just look at the london bombings.  the british government knew of the terrorist but wasnt allow to stop them.

You kinda mean like 9/11? But where is your evidence?

in the 2nd attack the brother went to italy where his 2 other brothers where at.  they had a nice website set up and collecting funds for terrorism.  they took the one terrorist brother back (after a month) but i dont recall if they sent those 2 other brothers back since they clearly where in on it too.

Evidence?

they had it mutli times on usa news and yahoo.com usa side.

cnn should have them in their archive. but you got to pay i believe to access it this far back. your news is not the same as our news. thats why i ask so many times what was being reported on your side.

no we never tested a neutron bomb. its pointless unless you do that one above ground. france in 1979 and china in the 90's both tested neutron bombs above ground. the only two nations ever known too.

some quick links on that http://uts.cc.utexas.edu/~wbova/fn/gov/china_nb.htm

chinese spy was a fact and caught stealing during late 90's, though i dont think he was ever went to prison. talking about a spy doesnt defend usa nor attack that nation.

alcu is crap. these little sobs believe terrorist have rights. when they failed with their lies that geneva gave them rights they try the usa system. and fail there.

alcu also believes that namba is okay. thats the group that believe men should have sex with boys.

alcu hasnt supported civil rights in a long time. they do cases for free and then under a federal law that any civil right case lawyers get paid no mater what. they even charge state and federal for lawyer fees on the high in of fee charges. they dont care a dang bit about civil rights. its about money for them.

the only people that help blacks during the civil rights fights where the fbi. thank god they went after those thugs in white.

BB, you make lots of claims, with no evidence to back them up.

For instance your contradict yourself: You say america never tested a neutron bomb, then in your next sentance you say they have, however you say they tested in a way that isn't "true" testing. An opinion. The FACT is the USA HAVE tested the neutron bomb.

Then you make claims about the ACLU, i can dig you up more links about the patriot act, a full read of the act will show you it makes all authorities more powerful and people having less freedom. Do you have evidence to back up your claims? We live in a capilist society - live with it - everyone wants to do whats most profitable for themselves.

Please think for an extra few seconds. I much prefer facts to comments with no reason. Hope you understand ;)

BTW, if the US never divised the Nuetron Bomb, there wouldn't be others trying to replicate it would there? ;)

neutron has never been test above ground in the usa. no where can i find or heard of usa testing underground. france and china has done a above ground test. i neutron bomb test needs to be above ground. its pointless underground. thats why when the france did one in 79 we colelcted the data. and collected china data too.

aclu is not a nice pro freedom group. its about free tax payer money and anti americanism. they choice a long time ago to be far left wing. they should stayed neutral.

the usa lab came up with neurton theory in 74 i believe it was.
