Taiwan neglects supercomputing says Yu-Tzu Chiu


Windrider Aground: Taiwan’s most powerful computer has fallen off the Top 500 list.
30 Dec 2015 Taipeh - According to Yu-Tzu Chiu Taiwan neglects supercomputing. He writes this in an article published in IEEE Spectrum. He says that a quick glance at the new ranking of top supercomputers reveals Taiwan does not possess a single machine powerful enough to make the TOP500 list. It has been a long decline, he notes. Taiwan's most powerful supercomputer, the Advanced Large-scale Parallel Super­cluster, also known as ALPS or Windrider, ranked 42nd in June 2011, shortly after its launch.
