China's Tianhe-2 Retains Fastest Supercomputer Title

For the fourth consecutive time, Tianhe-2, developed by China's National University of Defence Technology, has retained the top spot as the world's fastest supercomputer, according to a biannual Top500 list of supercomputers released Monday.

The updated list came on the heels of an announcement Friday by the US Department of Energy (DOE) that it would spend $325 million on building two supercomputers, which will be three to five times faster than Tianhe-2.
