This Supercomputer Can Calculate in 1 Second What Would Take You 6 Billion Years

It's shiny, fast and ultrapowerful. A physics laboratory in Tennessee just unveiled Summit, likely to be named the world's speediest and smartest supercomputer.The supercomputer — which fills a server room the size of two tennis courts — can spit out answers to 200 quadrillion (or 200 with 15 zeros) calculations per second, or 200 petaflops, according to Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where the supercomputer resides."If every person on the world completed one calculation per second, it would take the world population 305 days to do what Summit can do in 1 second," according to an ORNLstatement.Put another way, if one person were to run the calculations, hypothetically, it would take 2.3 trillion days, or 6.35 billion years.
