Top 10 fastest supercomputers in the world

A few days ago the European Commission chose the candidacies of Spain, Italy and Finland to install its new ‘pre-exaggeration’ supercomputers (of at least 100 petaflops), which will be installed in Barcelona (Spain), Bologna (Italy) and Kajaani (Finland ), with the aim of facilitating discoveries in areas such as artificial intelligence, new materials or the fight against cancer. Below is the list of the 10 fastest supercomputers in the world to date, carried out by Datacenter Knowledge.
