When it comes to processing speeds and very high levels of performance, no computer can match the absolute power of a supercomputer. They're a major part of the success of computational science as well, which includes weather forecasting, climate research, quantum mechanics and more, and can process information at a much faster rate than what we've become accustomed to with traditional computers. The research team at HP put together this infographic which analyzes the fastest supercomputers ever built, along with who built them.
The infographic shares the 50 fastest supercomputers that have ever been built, where the most come from the United States. The United States is responsible for building 16 of the top 50 supercomputers, and are followed by Japan with 10, France with 5, Germany with 5, Italy with 3, and China with 2. While the United States can take credit for building the most supercomputers, it's actually Japan that is credited with creating the fastest supercomputer ever. This would be Fujitsu's Supercomputer Fugaku, which can process an incredible 442,010.00 teraflops per second.
