New Scientist reports: [edited]

Twice a year the operators of the world's fastest computers eagerly await their latest ranking compiled by the Top500 project.

A new entrant at No. 5, China's fastest computer is capable of more than 500 trillion operations per second. A simple calculator's power is typically about 10 flops.

The computer combines 6144 Intel processors with 5120 graphics processing units made by AMD, normally found in computer graphics cards.

New in at No. 1, is the US Department of Energy's Jaguar, capable of 1,800,000,000,000,000 operations per second.
