Which is the fastest supercomputer in India?
Did you know that India has the fastest supercomputer in the world? That's right the Param Yuva II is the fastest supercomputer in India, and it's located at the Indian Institute of Science in Bengaluru.
The Param Yuva II is a high performance computing system that was developed by CDAC (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing). It has a peak speed of 20 teraflops (trillion floating point operations per second) and a theoretical maximum speed of 40 teraflops. The Param Yuva II is used for a variety of applications, including weather forecasting, climate modelling, earthquake simulation, and atomic energy research.
The Param Yuva II is not only the fastest supercomputer in India it's also one of the top 10 fastest supercomputers in the world. In fact, it's ranked #9 on the TOP500 list of the world's fastest supercomputers.
So what makes the Param Yuva II so fast? Well, it has a number of features that make it one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world. For example, it has a Cray XE6m200 compute node which consists of two AMD Opteron 6282 SE processors. Each processor has 16 cores and a clock speed of 2.8 GHz. In addition, theParam Yuva II has an SGI InfiniteStorage 5600 system which provides up to 5 PB (petabytes) of storage.
