Submission + - GPU Upgrade To Make Jaguar The Fastest Supercomput (gizmocrazed.com)

Mightee writes: "Supercomputers are at the front line of current processing capacity among all the families of computers. They are used for highly intensive tasks such as quantum physics, weather forecasting, climate research and molecular modeling etc.

In November '09 and October '10 Jaguar topped the Top500 lists of world's fastest supercomputers. But it was not until late October 2010 that Jaguar was dethroned by a Chinese supercomputer Tianhe-1A achieving 2.5 quadrillion calculations per second.

Now, after almost a year, the phoenix is going to rise out of the pyre; Jaguar is all set to become the most powerful supercomputer again."
