Supercomputers are the most powerful
computers made, and physically they
are some of the largest computers in the world(see Fig. 1
These systems can process huge amounts of data, and the fastest supercomputers can perform more than one
trillion calculations per second. Some
supercomputers can house thousands

The highly calculation-intensive tasks can be effectively performed by means of
supercomputers. Quantum physics, mechanics, weather forecasting, molecular theory are best studied by
means of supercomputers. Their ability of parallel processing and their well-designed memory hierarchy
give the supercomputers, large transaction processing powers.
ideal for handling large and highly
complex problems that require extreme calculating power. For example,
supercomputers have long been used in
the mapping of the human genome,
forecasting weather, and modeling
complex processes like nuclear fission.
