Extremely fast data processing
Speed is measured in “FLOPS”.
For highly calculation
For “high performance computing”.
Aims at capability computing rather than
Evolution of supercomputers
*Supercomputers were introduced in the 1960s .
*The supercomputers of the 1970s (Cray
Used only a few processors.

2) was an
8 processor supercomputer.
Speed was 1.9MFlops.
*In the 1990s, machines with thousands of processors
began to appear.
*By the end of the 20th century supercomputers with
ten thousands processors.

K20X GPU(Graphic Processing Unit)
1.Specifically designed to process the 3D
2. They are best suited for "parallellisable jobs“.
3. Higher throughput.
4. Accelerate scientific and technical computing.
5. GPUs are used in embedded systems, mobile
phones, personal computers, and video games.
6. Producing real
world phenomena like
explosions, smoke and fire.
