America’s Frontier became the world’s fastest supercomputer, know who is India’s fastest supercomputer

Supercomputer means machines that no one can compete with. American supercomputer Frontier has been voted the world’s fastest supercomputer. This is the first computer, which has come under the realm of exascale, that is, it can do quintillion calculations in a second. It is so fast that can only be imagined. Frontier has achieved this position by replacing the Japanese supercomputer Fujitsu.

The ranking of the world’s fastest supercomputers is called the TOP500. It was announced on 30 May, in America’s Frontier was chosen as the world’s fastest supercomputer. Exascale computing is expected to succeed in those scientific areas where extremely complex calculations have to be solved.

Frontier Supercomputers project director Justin Whitt said Frontier showed a speed of about 1.1 exaflops. In this way, it beat the previous record holder and supercomputer named Fugaku of Japan, which had achieved more than 0.4 exaflops. Although some reports suggest that many Chinese supercomputers are already achieving exascale performance, they have not yet been reported on the TOP500 rankings.

The ‘Frontier’, prepared after almost three years of hard work, will be ready for use by scientists by the end of this year. Through its capability, scientists will be able to understand how stars explode. Its calculation can also be used in many other kinds of research. This supercomputer is capable of performing millions of calculations in a second. HP and AMD also have a role in preparing it. Both are big players in the computer industry.

At the same time, talk about India’s most powerful supercomputer, then earlier this year the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) installed a new supercomputer ‘Param Pravega’. It has been installed under the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM). It is claimed that it is the most powerful supercomputer of its kind in the country. It is the largest supercomputer in any academic institute. IISc’s Ultimate Speed ​​has a supercomputing capacity of 3.3 petaflops. 1 petaflop is equal to 10 million quadrillion operations per second. Many components of Param Praveg are manufactured and assembled in India.
