The latest TOP500 list was published today in conjunction with SC15 in Austin. For the sixth consecutive time, the Tianhe-2 supercomputer in China has retained its position as the world’s No. 1 system. "In the bigger picture, China nearly tripled the number of systems on the latest list, while the number of systems in the United States has fallen to the lowest point since the TOP500 list was created in 1993. China is also carving out a bigger share as a manufacturer of high performance computers with multiple Chinese manufacturers becoming more active in this field."
