You will never call your $1000-$1500 computer fast enough when you will come to know about some of the fastest computers in the world.
The fastest computers today are thousands times faster than our home computers. They can do trillion and trillions of calculations in just a second.
Currently (as of 2019), IBM has developed the world’s fastest supercomputer named Summit or OLCF-4 and its capacity is 200 petaFLOPS. Summit is being used at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (United States).
Here, I am listing out all the world’s fastest supercomputers with the year, company and country name.
So, here we go…
