Supercomputer ready for retirement…

Recently I talked about parallel computing (here) and today I just faced with “IBM Roadrunner, the first petaflop machine, goes offline today.” in World’s top supercomputer from ‘09 is now obsolete, will be dismantled

IBM RoadRunner started in 2008 and now it became too expensive to run, but it’s still in top 25 (#22) .

Current supertcomputer give us double petaflops per watt performance/cost, compared to RoadRunner.

Hei, what’s the powerbill this month?  😦

But it’s life isnt’ ended at all, his electronic parts will be analyzed for future supercomputers’ projects.
