TOP500

Overview

With three decades of tracking the progress of supercomputing, the TOP500 list continues to provide a reliable historical record of supercomputers around the world. The list clearly lays out critical HPC metrics across all 500 machines and draws a rich picture of the state of the art in terms of performance, energy consumption, and power efficiency. The TOP500 now features an HPCG ranking, which measures a machine’s performance using irregular accesses to memory and fine-grain recursive computations—factors that dominate real-world, large-scale scientific workloads.

In November 2019, the 54th TOP500 list was unveiled at SC19 in Denver, CO. The United States remained on top with Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Summit machine. Summit updated its HPL benchmark result for the November 2019 list and achieved 148.6 PFLOP/s (vs. 122.3 PFLOP/s in June 2018).
