The Research Computing Center of Lomonosov at Moscow State University (MSU) and the RAS Joint Supercomputer Center have released the latest Top50 list of the most powerful computers in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States. The top 20 computers on the list are unchanged from last year, led by the MVS100K supercomputer at the RAS Joint Supercomputer Center with a Linpack-measured performance of 71.28 Tflops. Second on the list is a SKIG MSU Chebshev supercomputer based on a blade system.
The most recent list shows that minimal performance growth has occurred since the ratings started. The total actual performance of the systems is 387.1 Tflops, up from 382.6 Tflops six months ago. Only five of the Top50 systems on the list are new or were upgraded since the last list was issued. However, the number of supercomputers with an actual performance over 1 Tflop has grown from 47 to 49, with the minimum threshold of 978 Gflops now required for entry into the Top50 list.
The number of systems used in science and education grew from 30 to 31, while the number of supercomputers used for research decreased from 10 to nine.
