Green500 List top 10 are all powered by NVIDIA Tesla GPUs and Linux
The November 2013 edition of the Green500 List has be released, just two days after the TOP500 List.
Unlike the TOP500 List, which lists 500 of the worlds fastest supercomputers, the Green500 List lists the most energy-efficient supercomputers that made the TOP500 List. So for the Green500, it’s not about how fast, but how energy-efficient. That’s why China’s Tianhe-2, which topped the November 2013 TOP500 List, did not even make the top 10 of the Green500 List for the same month. Rather, it ranked number 41.
