    This is a good development.

    How is it comparable to other super computers in terms of performance ?

    its speed is about 1/10 of the global fastest super computer.

    nonsense

    it is one of the milestones where india used graphics processing to improve speed.........fyi
    today any country can build a super computer its advantage lies with its power consumption to its number crunching ability.

    Rs 10,000-crore push for India’s supercomp plan

    Rs 10,000-crore push for India’s supercomp plan

    India this week committed Rs 10,000 crore to indigenously develop the world’s fastest supercomputer by 2017. The Planning Commission agreed in principle to provide the funds to the Indian Space Research Organsiation (ISRO) and Indian Institute of Science (IIS), Bangalore to develop a supercomputer with a performance of 132.8 exaflops (132 quintillion floating operations per second). A quintillion has 18 zeros (a million has six).

    In computing, flops is an acronym to measure computing performance. An average personal computer can go up to 7.5 gigaflops

    The world’s fastest supercomputer right now is a Chinese one, which can do 2.7 pentaflops, or two quadrillion flops. A quadrillion has 15 zeros
    .
    India in 2007 had the world’s fourth fastest indigenously-developed supercomputer with a performance of 172.5 teraflops (172 trillion flops), which has been enhanced this month to 220 teraflops. That’s still a level lower than China’s supercomputer.

    The Indian supercomputer will not be used only for enhancing the country’s space abilities, it will also be used to predict monsoon and precise weather inputs to boost agriculture N Balakrishnan, associate professor at IIS-Bangalore, said the target being set is “ambitious” while referring to achieving the exaflop – or next level of computing performance -- by 2017. “We have planned everything minutely.”

    “We have agreed to provide R10,000 crore for having ‘exa’ level of supercomputing facility,” minister of state for planning Ashwini Kumar told HT.

    Balakrishnan, in a presentation to the plan panel, said ISRO has already booked key equipment to develop the supercomputer by 2017. “Most of the other gadgets will be indigenously developed,” he said. “Supercomputing is key to competing in the international space market,” Balakrishnan said.

    132800 petaflops as compared to China's 2.7 petaflops. 6 years is indeed ambitious.

    it is sure an ambitious project, but if
    .
    we dream for moon then surely will land among stars.

    This is jaw dropping news, I mean exaflops is something I have never even heard of. slowly but surely
    india is getting confident in every aspect of technology. I bet even US hasn't even done anything this ambitious.

    The US stands at 2 Petaflops, behind China as of today.

    US is finding our UID project a little too much to grasp. This will blow their tops off.

    It would be a remarkable feat to achieve in the time frame they are expecting it to be.

    This will justify our mastery and no one will be able to question India in this field in the future.

    Please keep this thread updated over the months , we want to follow the development and see if this can be realized at the end of 6 years . if yes we have a winner on hand.

    I really wish its architects look at parallel-processing technologies such as NVIDIA Tesla or AMD Stream, and not spend eight times more on just serial-load multi-core processors.

    sir,
    the very easy and efficient way to achive this speed is to use cloud computing.
    As it utilise processer speed more efficently and very cheaply.

    Isnt the latest supercomputer design always going to be the fastest ??

    Given that the most recent guys will have access to the fastest, most number of cores, and lowest-power CPUs as a starting base.

    Plus if they can leverage the latest software advances in parallel-processing then it would seems like the latest guy should have the maximum advantage in the speed race.
