Top Supercomputer in the world

What is Supercomputer? 


supercomputer is a computer with a high level of computing performance compared to a general-purpose computer. Performance of a supercomputer is measured in floating-point operations per second (FLOPS) instead of million instructions per second (MIPS). As of 2017, there are supercomputers which can perform up to nearly a hundred quadrillions of FLOPS, measured in P(eta)FLOPS. The majority of supercomputers today run Linux-based operating systems.

Seymour Cray invented the first computer in the world 

The CDC 6600 from Control Data Corp., is generally recognized as the first supercomputer, according to Wikipedia. Built in 1964, it was designed by Seymour Cray, and ran at about 1 megaflop (a million floating point operations per second). That was about three times faster than the previous fastest computer, the IBM 7030 Stretch. (Today, an iPhone 3Gs can run at about 6.42 megaflops.)
The UNIVAC, which first appeared in 1951, was the first commercial computer produced in the United States.
Seymour Cray left CDC in 1972 to start his own company. The first Cray-1 supercomputer was installed at Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1972.

About First Supercomputer 

The first supercomputer, Released in 1964, the Control Data Corporation (CDC) 6600, only had a single CPU. 

First Supercomputer in India

PARAM is a series of the first supercomputers designed and assembled by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) in PuneIndia
