IBM Develops World's Fastest Supercomputer

IBM has created a new supercomputer called Blue Gene/L which is a teraflop faster than the Earth Simulator in Japan which i visited a couple years ago although it is only partially built. The supercomputer is also 100x smaller than the ES. Livermore labs has ordered one that will be installed in 2005 which runs at 360 teraflops!
