Titan, a supercomputer featuring 18,688 CPUs and GPUs. We take a look at why ORNL went with this design, its benefits, and of course, its capabilities.

    The Chinese apparently want to top the Titan by 5x, around 2015. It will be their Tianhe-II supercomputer. However, for all that matters, it didn’t happen until it happened. On another hand, I doubt they will use it exclusively for scientific public research. Tianhe-I was (is) used for Defense and natural resources exploration.
