Whenever it comes to computers, it comes to our mind that a machine that can work fast and without precision, but when it comes to supercomputer, a big computer computer comes in front of you Only millions can make calculations. Great computers are being worked on supercomputers all over the world but India is far behind in this case.
America has 233 supercomputers
There are only 233 supercomputers in the US, while their number in India is only 11. On the other hand, 2 computers have been included in the Top 100 list. Recently, the organization named Top 500 Project has released a list of 500 top supercomputers worldwide, including 11 supercomputers in India. Let us know that the organization named Top 500 Project collects statistics about supercomputers. This institution releases the list of countries with supercomputers every two years. So let us know today in detail about India’s top 5 supercomputers and their use.
Supercomputers are being used in India from automobiles industry to research in medical and education. Talk about the top 5 supercomputers in India, the names of supercomputers such as Sahras (Cray XC40), Aditya, TIFR Color Boson, IIT Delhi HPC and Ultimate Youth 2 are revealed. Let’s know about them.
