Today Nvidia announced that, for the second year in a row, the fastest system on the Green500 is powered by the company’s Tesla GPUs. At #2 on the Green500 list, the Tsubame 2.0 supercomputer at the Tokyo Institute of Technology sustains 1.192 Petaflops of LINPACK performance with only 1398.61 Kw of power. The system is also the only contender in the Top5 of both lists (it is also ranked #5 on the TOP500).
Three other Tesla GPU-based systems made the Top 10.
