Top10 Supercomputers: Peak and LINPACK

Home Previous page Next page

The standard ranking of supercomputers is based on their performance in the LINPACK benchmark. The LINPACK behaver correlates well with the peak and it is usually 50-80 % of the peak.

This page is again a plot of the top 10+1 supercomputers that also shows the LINPACK performance (green columns). The y-axis reaches just to 200 PFlop/s.

The LINPACK benchmark is used as the main way of the assessment of the performance, because it is implementation of one of the principal method of the Numerical Linear Algebra - solving systems of of linear equations using Gaussian elimination.
