is popular as a yardstick of supercomputing performance, NASA is primarily interested in how the Columbia system will revolutionize the rate of scientific discovery at the Agency.
Indeed so talented were the Tsinghua University team, they scored highly on all seven questions, gaining a clear overall majority, while Nanyang Technological University from Singapore impressed with their performance on LINPACK
For the purpose of conducting point basic operating tests and design-performance checks, the system was tested on October 7 -8, using the LINPACK
benchmarking program and measured processing speeds of 10.
To test the system's performance at the configuration stage, the K computer's processing speed was measured by the LINPACK
benchmark program, placing it on the 37th TOP500 ranking of the world's fastest supercomputers.
The Graph500 was established as a complement to the TOP500 list, which ranks supercomputers based on performance speed via a benchmark called the LINPACK
was certified by the TOP500 list as one of the fastest supercomputers in the world as measured by the LINPACK
