SC500: China wins a slowing supercomputer race

Joab Jackson | June 24, 2014
China continues to dominate the high end of the Top500 list of the world's most powerful supercomputers, even as the growth of the computing power on the list seems to be stagnating.

Intel continues to be the dominant processor provider for these large systems. About 85 percent of the systems on the list use Intel, compared with 8 percent of the systems that use IBM Power processors and 6 percent running AMD Opterons.

Hewlett-Packard continues to be the most widely used supercomputer vendor, having delivered 197 systems on the list, above IBM's 164 systems and Cray's 48 systems.
