: The fastest computers of the world
The fastest computers of the world.
One of sensations presently is the supercomputer. They can look as a small
case, or a curbstone near a table.
Business and its requirements for calculations grow, together with it the
supercomputer develops also.
It differs from the usual computer in additional processors and hard
disks. For increasing of working frequency special processors are used.
They are executed on the logic circuits. The style programming is determined
by use of group parallel of processors. We can divide given on a portion
between different processors. Each of processor carries out a part of work
together with others. During process they exchange the data. Modern
supercomputers are expansionly. You can add processors for acceleration of
calculation. For the reference to external memory, the processor should use the
circuit of transfer of the information.
The new computers help the petroleum companies to estimate possible reserves
of petroleum and gas, by data processing. They can simulate outflow of raw
material from tanks.
The manufacturers of automobiles can imitate an impact of the prototype about
a wall. It allows to let out more reliable and powerful production.
The supercomputers are used at telephone stations. The orders of steel to be
processed quickly. Consultator, which serves the buyers, enters the
applications for a line. They act on processing or immediately, or periodicaly.
The decisive triumph, can, consists in penetration of multiprocessor
architecture into all personal computers.
