Tianhe-1A-the fastest supercomputer in the world

Sunday, October 31, 2010

Tianhe-1ARecent HPC Conference 2010 in China China showed a new supercomputer, which record petaflop performance 2507 dough LINPACK, making it the fastest today computer systems both in China and around the world.

Computer Tianhe-1A uses 77168 graphics processors (GPU) NVIDIA Tesla M2050 and 14336 universal multi-core processors (CPU). Use THE GPU can significantly improve performance by reducing the size and power consumption supercomputer.For example, to achieve full Teraflop performance 2507 without GPU, THE CPU would have to use 50000, doubling the space and power consumption increased in 3 times from 4.04 to 12 megawatts.For comparison: the amount of energy enough to provide electricity to over 5000 homes for a year.

Tianhe-1A, a Chinese National University of Defense technology (National University of Defense Technology) and the national Supercomputer Center is located in the city Tiand?in.

At Mt. Everest's retreating glaciers appeared online

If you accidentally (and likely, especially) are on Mt. Everest's retreating glaciers, know: from now on, you can report it to your friends, acquaintances, relatives and folovery directly from the roof of the world.

Ncell Company, which is a subsidiary of TeliaSonera Sweden, found near the top 3 g-station, and 6 stations are nearby. Thanks to the new high-speed service, you can use social networks directly on top of, and carry out video calls.

The highest station is located at the last base camp at an altitude of 5300 metres. This last point, where the peaks are conquerors until such time as you climb the highest mountain on Earth.Internet on top can be used before, but this would have to lug a heavy satellite equipment.

Night Earth Globe

Everyone who is interested in seeing that the astronauts from space at night when on Earth bonfires, you are able to see it first hand.And these are not images published on the Internet, and on a 3D Globe night Earth Globe City Lights that can buy.

Rotating globe will know what are the biggest cities of our planet at night. The globe has a well-lit location in Eastern Europe and North America, Russia and Africa are much less illuminated.

City Lights light up automatically when the globe is in darkness, and turns off when it gets light. The largest country, city and water surface caused by name. Multicolor political map will distinguish between a State and a major administrative units within them.

Diameter of the globe – 10 inches. It automatically rotates to the mirror database, which is Antarctica and water around the white continent.Batteries for the globe are not needed, it works from the electrical outlet.You can Buy in the store Hammacher Schlemmer ninety dollars.

Flexible 6-inch AMOLED display

?????? amoled ??????? The Taiwan Research Institute ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute) has created a flexible 6-inch AMOLED color display technology, also developed by FlexUPD walls of this institution.

New display from ITRI has a thickness of only 0.01 inches and is able to show images, even when minimized to the tube with a radius of 5 cm or less. Developers reported that undergo such a procedure to display at least 15000 times without compromising efficiency.

ITRI argues that technology FlexUPD is the easiest and cheapest way of mass production for today screens similar to the paper.It is expected that the new development from ITRI as soon as it comes to Rails, so very soon we will be able to see it-based solutions from companies that AUO plans to produce flexible ?italok for electronic books.

Tablet Novatech nTablet – costly compromise between Android and Windows 7

If you are looking for a tablet, but can't decide what OS preference, then the company has a Novatech shall devays with interest to you.New Tablet PC, the producer nTablet can boot with Android and Windows 7-so instead of having to choose the platform, Novatech has decided to leave the choice for consumers.

Novelty is reminiscent of devices such as Tegatech Tega v2 and Viewsonic ViewPad 100. Unfortunately, the advantage of choosing between operating systems on a single devajse will cost consumers quite expensive.Without a preinstalled OS nTablet will cost $ 552.In turn, the version with Windows 7 Home Premium and professional, you have to pay $ and $ 740 693 respectively.

Specifications include the Intel Atom Processor N455 1.66 GHz, 1 GB of DDR3 memory, solid-state drive, 32 GB, 10.1-inch capacitive mul?tita? display with a resolution of 1024 x 600, battery capacity, 4200 MAH, two USB ports, 1.3 megapixel camera and Wi-Fi b/g/n.
