LinuxInsider: The NNSA will need all the computing power BlueGene can muster when it is fully built because of the complicated calculations necessary to understand the effects of aging on the United States' nuclear weapons cache. "At the NNSA, we need certain data that we would normally get from an underground nuclear test," said the NNSA's Bryan Wilkes.
The IBM supercomputer BlueGene/L has done it again, almost doubling its already world record-breaking speed to 183.5 teraflops -- or 183.5 trillion floating point calculations -- per second.
