    I agreed with you at first, but when I asked IBM why their supecomputers were only going to run around 100 petaflops and Intel 180 petaflops, they changed their tune and said the Lawrence Livermore might top 200 petaflops. So the contest is where the three supercomputers will rank in the Top500 lists when they are all running circa 2018.

    A new paper by a team of researchers led by Karel Matous , College of Engineering Associate Professor of Computational Mechanics in the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, describes how an accurate statistical description of heterogeneous particulate materials, which is used within statistical micromechanics theories, governs the overall thermo-mechanical properties. This detailed statistical description was computed using a novel adaptive interpolation/integration scheme on the nation's largest parallel supercomputers.
