Computer 'will do 1000 trillion operations a second

Date: November 18 2003

Battelle Memorial Institute says it is building the world's fastest supercomputer.

The machine, expected to be capable of 1000 trillion operations per second when completed in 2008, is being built at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee.

Columbus-based Battelle, the world's largest independent, nonprofit research organisation, manages Oak Ridge and three other laboratories for the US Department of Energy.

Battelle said the computer would be 300 times faster than a similar computer in Japan, called Earth Simulator, which can perform 35.8 trillion operations per second.

The supercomputer will also enable scientists to model world weather patterns or research black holes
