From Wired:

The Japanese have broken the 10 petaflop barrier.

On Wednesday, Japanese IT giant Fujitsu and the government-funded RIKEN research lab announced that the supercomputer they’ve built in Kobe can speed through 10.51 quadrillion floating point operations per second.

Known as the “K Computer,” this is the first megamachine to achieve 10 quadrillion operations a second — aka 10 petaflops — and it will be named the world’s fastest supercomputer when the official Top 500 list is unveiled next week.
