As of November 2007, the IBM Blue Gene/L at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is the fastest operational supercomputer, with a sustained processing rate of 478.2 TFLOPS.[2]

On June 26, 2007, IBM unveiled Blue Gene/P, the second generation of the Blue Gene supercomputer. These computers can sustain one PFLOPS. IBM has announced that several customers will install these systems later in 2007. One of these is likely to become the fastest deployed supercomputer at that time. [1]

The MDGRAPE-3 supercomputer, which was completed in June 2006, reportedly reached one PFLOPS calculation speed, though it may not qualify as a general-purpose supercomputer as its specialized hardware is optimized for molecular dynamics simulations


hmm well thats cool, I wonder what u could do with that thing
