Intel Inside Supercomputers



Intel processors power a growing number of supercomputers, according to a semiannual survey known as the Top500 list, which is compiled by researchers at the University of Mannheim, the University of Tennessee, and the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The number of the 500 largest systems using Intel chips grew in the last six months to 119 from 56, representing a shift in the marketplace, researchers say. With this increase, Intel processors join IBM's Power architecture and Hewlett-Packard's PA-RISC chips as the dominant processors used in high-performance cluster systems, according to survey results.
