Supercomputing under a New Lens: A Sandia-Developed Benchmark Re-ranks Top Computers

A Sandia National Laboratories software program now installed as an additional test for the widely observed TOP500 supercomputer challenge has become increasingly prominent. The program’s full name — High Performance Conjugate Gradients, or HPCG — doesn’t come trippingly to the tongue, but word is...

Quantum Computers Barely Exist—Here’s Why We’re Writing Languages for Them Anyway

Quantum computers are still extremely rudimentary, and largely remain intriguing playthings in a few advanced research labs. That hasn’t deterred people from developing new programming languages for them. The most recent one comes from Microsoft, which has unveiled Q# (pronounced Q sharp) and some...

​Linux Totally Dominates Supercomputers

Linux rules supercomputing. This day has been coming since 1998, when Linux first appeared on the TOP500 Supercomputer list. Today it finally happened: All 500 of the world's fastest supercomputers are running Linux. The last two non-Linux systems, a pair of Chinese IBM POWER computers running AIX...
