    5. Asus System Named The Most Efficient Supercomputer

      Asus System Named The Most Efficient Supercomputer

      Much of the attention at the SC14 supercomputing show last week in New Orleans centered on the release of the Top500 list, a roster of the world’s fastest supercomputers. The twice-yearly list is leveraged by system vendors and component makers to tout their technologies and by countries for bragging rights. However, in the computing world—not only in the high-performance computing (HPC) space, but also among enterprises, telecommunications providers and businesses in general—power efficiency often is as important a metric when assessing data center technologies as performance is.
