List: Top 10 Most Powerful Commercially Available Computer Systems

Date: November 2005

Source: www.top500.org/

Base: The most powerful commercially available computer systems known to the 'TOP500 Computer Systems' organisation as measured by TFlop/s Linpack performance.

Notes: The TOP500 project was started in 1993 to provide a reliable basis for tracking and detecting trends in high-performance computing. Twice a year, a list of the sites operating the 500 most powerful computer systems is assembled and released. The best performance on the Linpack benchmark is used as performance measure for ranking the computer systems. The table below shows the 26th TOP500 List and was introduced during the Supercomputing Conference (SC|05) in Seattle, WA, USA. To see the full 500 and a complete breakdown of the rubric used to measure the power of the computing systems (TFlop/s Linpack performance) please follow the link to www.top500.org shown above.
