After the planned modernization held in mid 2008, the peak productivity of the renewed supercomputer rose from 45 to 95 45 до 95 teraflops, which allowed it taking the 35th position in the global rating.
Today the RAS ISC supercomputer is a key element in the information and computing infrastructure of the center, an essential tool for researches on physics, astronomy, biology, chemistry and other branches of science.
About the rating.
The TOP-500 rating of supercomputers is published twice a year following the results of the researches of scientists from the University od Tennessee and Manheim (Germany) and Lawrence-Barclays National Laboratory, the center or researching NERSC super computers. ION this rating the supercomputers of the world are assessed according to LINPAC N*N Benchmark criterion, which calculates productivity, velocity and scalability of the processor.
